The Guest House of Milwaukee Cream City Gardens Program

Steven Armus

University of Wisconsin-Madison graduate Steven Armus is a physician who owns and manages two businesses: Dermatology Consultants of Wisconsin and Native Prairie Restoration, both located in Franksville. In spite of his busy work schedule, Steven Armus finds time to give back through his support of the Guest House of Milwaukee.

Established in 1981, the Guest House of Milwaukee was built as a community-based solution for the burgeoning number of people who were homeless in Milwaukee’s inner city. To date, the Guest House has served countless individuals through its ever-growing host of programs, including the Cream City Gardens.

An urban gardening program that initially sought to transform vacant lots into fertile farms, the Cream City Gardens have grown to include 56 raised garden beds and over half an acre of in-ground planting rows. The gardens house the Urban Agriculture Training Program, which trains individuals who were homeless in the areas of basic agriculture, urban gardening, and the green industry.
