“Straw Bale Gardening Demo at The Garden Door”
By Master Gardeners Dora Leonardson and Sue Kunz
Monday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m. (Rain Date Tuesday, June 6 at 5:30 p.m.)
Offered in-person at The Garden Door located at the
Peninsular Agricultural Research Station at 4312 Highway 42 in Sturgeon Bay
Educational Outreach by Door County Master Gardeners in collaboration with the Door County Seed Library
Do you have soil that is too thin or rocky to support plants or limited space to devote to a garden? Or maybe you’d find a raised bed more convenient? Learn how straw bale gardening could solve these problems at a demonstration by Door County Master Gardeners Association (DCMGA) in collaboration with the Door County Seed Library. The demonstration, part of DCMGA’s Educational Lecture Series, will be held on Monday, June 5, at 5:30 p.m. in The Garden Door at the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station at 4312 Highway 42 in Sturgeon Bay. (Rain date is Tuesday, June 6, at 5:30 p.m.)
Master Gardeners Dora Leonardson and Sue Kunz will demonstrate how to plant a straw bale for this fun and effective gardening method. Printed straw bale conditioning instructions will be available. Once planted, the straw bales will become part of DCMGA’s educational display vegetable garden in The Garden Door. Vegetables harvested from the garden are donated to the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) in Sturgeon Bay.
The 2023 DCMGA Educational Lecture Series is being presented with support from the Door County Medical Center.
