Master Gardeners Host Final Summer Demos Sept. 12

The Door County Master Gardeners Association announces the final program in a series of summertime educational events celebrating 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.

Join the Master Gardeners in the Garden Door Sept. 12 at 6 pm for a 90-minute program featuring three speakers with terrific presentations and using the garden for demonstration purposes. Each presentation lasts roughly 20 minutes and there will be time for questions. The first speaker is Matt Stasiak, superintendent/researcher, of the UW Peninsular Agricultural Research Station. He will review the activities of the research station and the significant role it plays in Wisconsin and beyond. Many citizens are unaware of the broad, important work public research plays in support of commercial and private agricultural efforts in Wisconsin.

The second speaker is Wendy Woldt, a Door County Master Gardener who will lead an overview of the Garden Door’s Tunnel Garden. This unique portion of the garden features structures, glass garden ornaments, and carefully chosen plantings to create a very special place.

Finally, Chriss Daubner returns to complete her series of discussions related to creating, planting and maintaining container gardens. She will plant containers and talk a bit about plant choice and maintenance.

As with almost all of the Door County Master Gardeners’ events, this is free and open to the public. Seating is very limited in the garden. Participants are welcome and encouraged to bring a folding chair to the event and to dress appropriately for the weather. For more information visit
