MONTREAL, Wis. — Northern Iron County Engaged Residents successfully completed its online crowdfunding fundraiser last week as the local group continues to raise money to develop a community garden in the city of Montreal.

“I was pleasantly surprised by the support we received from everybody,” said Kari Klemme, NICER secretary and garden committee chairwoman.

She said the online campaign on seedmoney.org — a non-profit focused on supporting public food garden projects — raised roughly $3,850, which exceeded the campaign’s initial goal of $3,000.
