Master Gardener Associations all over the state do many great things. Here is a highlight from the 2013 Annual Report:
A major part of NLMGA volunteer hours is maintenance at Harmony Demonstration Gardens. The reason so much time is spent maintaining the gardens at Harmony is that this is where a good portion of the horticulture education for the general public is conducted by UW-Extension and Marinette County Land & Water Conservation. As well as spending many hours keeping the gardens weeded, maintaining the garden hardscape takes a good deal of time. Recently the Herb Garden arbor was replaced as repairs were no longer possible. All MGVs seem to be very talented in other areas as well as horticulture, and this project involved woodworking, stained glass artistry, and teamwork to get it done. Making Harmony Demonstration Gardens an attractive place is key to interesting the public in attending classes and visiting on their own.
