Master Gardeners’ Plant Fair Returns

The Door County Master Gardeners Association’s (DCMGA) plant fair is back the first weekend in June with fun and educational activities, a garden-related arts-and-crafts marketplace, open-pollinated plants to attract birds and bees, and a wide variety of herbs and vegetables. The events will take place at the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station, 4312 Hwy 42 in Sturgeon Bay. 

DCMGA’s First Pick on June 2, 5-7 pm, is a ticketed event that provides early access to all plants at $3.50 each and live music. Tickets are limited and must be purchased in advance for $10, either online at or in person at the Door County Extension office, 421 Nebraska St. in Sturgeon Bay.

The plant fair opens to the public June 3, 8:30 am – 12 pm. It will feature a wide range of popular and proven annuals, vegetables and herbs. DCMGA members worked with the Door County Seed Library to grow a variety of open-pollinated and heirloom seedlings, including tomatoes, peppers and herbs, for people who want to enjoy these varieties but may not have the ability to start seeds on their own. The plant fair will also feature flowers and vegetables that are well suited to Door County’s climate. 

At both events, there will also be a marketplace of garden-themed arts and crafts and garden accessories, as well as a fundraising raffle. Master Gardeners and representatives from partner organizations such as the Door County Seed Library and Wild Ones: Door Peninsula Chapter will also offer free education and gardening tips on Saturday morning.
