The Door County Master Gardeners Association is hosting an Open House on July 8, 1 – 4 pm, to celebrate the 13th anniversary of their free public display garden, The Garden Door. The garden is located on Highway 42 just north of Sturgeon Bay, on the grounds of the UW Peninsular Agricultural Research Station. The garden is accessible with paved walkways and parking is available.
While viewing the spectacular plantings this garden offers, open house visitors have a special opportunity to hear some of the Door County Master Gardener’s finest members and local garden enthusiasts discussing a series of interesting topics. Visiting gardeners will learn about pollinators, explore the basics of sun safety, and view demonstrations on planting containers, arranging flowers, and composting with worms. Anyone who is a fan of county fairs will also enjoy the presentations focused on how to exhibit flowers and vegetables effectively at the event. In addition to the presentations, and new this year is a Children’s Activity Tent. Youngsters can have a great deal of fun gardening and here is a chance to get them inspired and involved. The Door County Master Gardeners Plant Health Advisors will also be on hand to answer questions about issues one might be facing this growing season. It’s a great chance to take advantage of their knowledge and expertise.
This event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit dcmga.org.
