The Door County Master Gardeners are hoping operations get back to normal sooner rather than later. In 2020, like most operations, they scaled back heavily, without getting much opportunity to take in their 25th year. Though Master Gardeners President Mary Moster was understanding, a difficult challenge to swallow was being unable to open the research station at the Garden Door.
The Garden Door has not opened yet for the public, but there is regular communication to help decide when it will open. Another misfortune was that the Master Gardeners missed out on being able to hold their annual plant sale last May and this coming May. One development leading to optimism is that volunteers are allowed back on research station property. They will be cleaning and preparing the station for the Summer. There are no guarantees for this Summer, but Moster is hopeful for an opening.
Moster and volunteers look forward to working on approved projects in the community that include safety protocols in the near future.
