Accessible Gardening is Next Topic of Door County Master Gardeners Program

Join the Door County Master Gardeners Association at a free public program, titled “Accessible Gardening – Enjoy Gardening Now and Into the Future,” on March 22 at 7 pm in the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek.

Maintaining a home garden does not have to be backbreaking work, and gardening is not limited exclusively to the very young, fit and strong. In fact, gardening is a healthy and beneficial activity no matter how young or old, limber or stiff, a garden enthusiast might be. Smart gardeners always find ways to ease their work and be efficient as they tend their plants. The trick is to create gardens that accommodate specific lifestyles.

This program will take a close look at smart, accessible gardens. Garden structures and designs that make working in the garden easier, like vertical wall gardens, will be discussed. The program will demonstrate innovative tools that are easy to handle, and it will detail horticultural therapy garden design.

The speaker for the evening is Kathleen Blankenburg, owner of The Gardening Angel, a garden design firm located in Door County specializing in small space/raised bed and accessible gardens for individuals with physical disabilities.

The program is free and open to the public. Crossroads at Big Creek is located at 2041 Michigan Street in Sturgeon Bay. For more information visit
