Master Gardeners Host Garden Door Presentation July 11

The Door County Master Gardeners Association announces the second 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 on July 11 at 7 pm for a 90-minute program featuring three speakers with terrific presentations using The Garden Door for demonstration purposes. Each presentation lasts roughly 20 minutes and there will be time for questions. The first speaker is Master Gardener Tom Luebker who will guide visitors through the beautiful Entrance Garden at the Peninsular Research Station, a display enjoyed by many as they travel Highway 42 north from Sturgeon Bay. He designed, planted and maintains the garden and will share his secrets for success. Next up is another veteran Master Gardener, Kathy Green, whose presentation, “The Herb Garden: Combining Edible, Culinary, Fragrant and Healing Herbs in One Garden” will help everyone appreciate The Garden Door’s herb display and inspire stunning but useful home herbal gardens. And finally, the Master Gardener’s Jim Baxter will demonstrate growing plants from seeds under lights at home.

As with almost all of the Door County Master Gardeners’ events, this is free and open to the public. There is very limited seating in the garden and participants are welcome and encouraged to bring a folding lawn chair. For more information visit
