Thank Master Gardener Volunteers on April 7
The Wisconsin Master Gardener Program is celebrating Master Gardener Volunteer Week April 5-9. Volunteers with the Door County Master Gardeners Association (DCMGA, dcmga.org) are an important part of UW-Madison Extension’s statewide Master Gardener Program (mastergardener.extension.wisc.edu) and make a positive difference through 15 outreach projects for schools, nonprofit and governmental organizations, including the Garden Door, a public display garden at the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station, 4312 Hwy 42 in Sturgeon Bay.
Since 1995, the 100-plus volunteers of the DCMGA have spent thousands of hours answering diagnostic questions, educating the public about horticulture through workshops, growing and donating food to local pantries, and beautifying community spaces.
To thank these volunteers for their dedication and contributions on April 7 – Thank a Master Gardener Volunteer Day – comment on the DCMGA Facebook page, call the UW-Extension’s Door County office at 920.746.2260, or mail a thank-you card to UW-Extension Door County, 421 Nebraska St., Sturgeon Bay, WI 54235.
