Weyonia Shurn, 16, used to eat chips for breakfast and buy junk food from other students at her high school.

..

But after spending the last month mulching and weeding alongside almost 30 teenage workers at a 2-acre urban garden located in Lindsay Heights, Shurn said that, for the first time, she's interested in being healthy.

..

She fixes herself eggs in the morning and drinks water instead of soda. She knows what anise tastes like and how to plant tomatoes deep in the ground so that wind doesn't uproot them.

..

For more than 40 years, Alice's Garden has been exposing teenage staffers like Shurn, community volunteers and local residents to the long-standing but forgotten practice of cultivating fresh food in city spaces.

..

"I get told to eat right all the time, but without experiencing it, you won't do too much," Shurn said. "I never knew it could be so much better than canned, artificial foods."

The Milwaukee County-owned garden is usually open from April to mid-November. It includes 127 rental farming plots and grass- and herb-padded spaces where a men's circle, reading groups and yogis also meet.

..

Money from the rental plots helps pay water bills and cover basic necessities, and the rest of the garden's operations are funded by grants and partnerships with local foundations and organizations.
