Master Gardeners to Present Lectures on Spiders and Vegetable Gardens

The Door County Master Gardeners announce two, free continuing education programs for March.

On March 5, the Door County Master Gardeners want to help Door County residents overcome their unnatural fear of spiders, especially those often found in gardens, with “Your Eight-legged Colleagues: Spiders in Your Garden.” UW-Green Bay Biology professor and spider expert Dr. Mike Draney will speak about how spiders can be very beneficial garden inhabitants.

On March 19, Master Gardener Volunteer Tom Luebker will present “How to Grow a Vegetable Garden,” a program designed to help anyone interested in growing healthy, homegrown vegetables. Luebker possesses the most up-to-date information about current vegetable gardening practices and brings a common sense approach to growing healthy food at home.

Both programs are held at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay and begin at 7 pm. Crossroads is located at 2041 Michigan Street.
