On the morning of August 15th, the Holmen Area Rotary Club slept in instead of going to their regular am meeting at the Village Hall. In its place, they all met at the Holmen Community Garden Wednesday evening. Now what do you get when you put the Holmen Rotary and the Holmen Community Garden together? A mountain of sweet corn of course! The members picked buckets of cucumbers, boxes of tomatoes, zounds of zukes and  wheelbarrows of sweet corn. Some of this fresh bounty was grilled and consumed before it could be carted away, washed down with a soda or barley pop. As you read this, these veggies are working their way into the community, available at designated sites and local food pantries. Approximately 1500 pounds of produce was picked and distributed.
