The Door County Master Gardeners Association (DCMG) announces the second in a series of summertime educational events celebrating their free public display garden, The Garden Door. The garden is located on the grounds of the UW Peninsular Agricultural Research Station.
Join the DCMG in the Garden Door on July 10, 7 pm for a 90-minute program featuring three speakers with presentations using the garden for demonstration purposes. Each presentation lasts roughly 20 minutes with time for questions.
The evening begins with DCMG volunteer Carrie Sherrill who will speak about edible flowers. A home garden can provide more than just beauty. Karen Newbern of Door Landscape and a DCMG volunteer follows with a discussion on working with native plants in your garden. Newbern’s presentation will be helpful to gardeners who want to incorporate native plants at home. The last presentation of the evening will come from another DCMG volunteer, Dan Waszak, who talks about evolving garden design. Gardens of the 21st century will look different from those of the past. Waszak will talk about where are our gardens are headed. In case of inclement weather, the class moves to the research station’s classroom.
The event is free but seating is limited. Participants are welcome and encouraged to bring a folding lawn chair and to dress appropriately for the weather. For more information visit dcmga.org.
