Prospective Master Gardeners hit the books

The Master Gardeners 2020 class started on January 8th and will continue each Wednesday through April. Door County is one of 70 counties in the state with a Master Gardener program. Curriculum is split roughly 50/50 between guidelines imposed at the state level by the University of Wisconsin-Madison and subjects unique to local chapters. Only a dozen people are selected for the Master Gardener program in Door County each year with most being transplants. According to Carrie Sherrill they have to relearn how to garden with Door County’s challenges in mind.


Sherrill says only about a third of the group’s students were born and raised in Door County.
