Annually over the last eight years area Northern Lights Master Gardeners Association (NLMGA) has sponsored a Garden Walk featuring local gardens. It is with regret that the 2018 Garden Walk is postponed. Tentative plans are a July 20, 2019 date for next year. We thank the many repeat attendees of our Garden Walks for their support and apologize for delivering this news at this late date.
We are grateful for the many homeowners and non-profit organizations that have helped make this Garden Walk a success. To allow us to continue this event, we invite homeowners, businesses or non-profits who have garden sites they are willing to open to the public for a one day tour in the future to express interest. The co-chairs and contact information for questions or recommendations of gardens for consideration are: Gail Mandli at 715-789-2872 and Viki Palid at 715-735-6137.
The demonstration garden at Harmony Arboretum maintained by NLMGA on County Road E, Peshtigo is always open to the public. This garden is a wonderful stop for families throughout the growing season. Both adults and children will see and learn many interesting facts at this garden that is maintained by NLMGA members. 2018 Nature and Horticulture programs presented by the UW Extension, Marinette County Land & Water Conservation Division and NLMGA can by found at https://marinette.extension.wisc.edu or on Facebook.
Funds raised will be used to support educational programs.
The walk is self-guided and the gardens may be visited in any order. Some locations may have stairways, narrow walkways and uneven terrain- proper footwear is recommended.
Restaurant specials will be exclusively available to ticket holders the day of the walk.
