Master Gardeners Highlight The Garden Door

Join the Door County Master Gardeners (DCMG) at the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station on Sept. 11, 6 pm for a 90-minute program highlighting the Garden Door itself, ornamental grasses and pollinator home construction techniques.

The program begins with Barbara Henderson of the DCMG, who as the chief tour guide for the garden, will lead visitors through a formal tour of the grounds. This is a wonderful way to get to know the garden and will set the stage for enjoyable and informed further visits.

Next up is Annie Deutsch, agriculture agent with the UW-Extension office, who will speak about how a gardener builds homes for pollinators in the garden. Last to present is Jim Baxter. The Garden’s ornamental grasses collection is reaching its peak beauty now and Baxter, who has managed the collection, will end the evening exploring the fantastic world of ornamental grasses.

Participants should dress for the weather and bring a folding chair; seating is limited in the garden. The Garden Door is fully accessible and parking is directly adjacent to the garden.

This program is free and open to the public. The Garden Door is located on the grounds of the UW Peninsular Agricultural Research Station. For more information visit
