Fighting the Pandemic

We’re sorry to announce that ALL of our programing must be put on hold for the foreseeable future, per the Wisconsin Master Gardener program and UW Extension, while our state and country work to defeat the coronovirus pandemic. This means we must cancel all monthly general membership meetings, Coffee Talks at the Libraries, Spring Plant Sale in May, Ask a Master Gardener booths at the farmer’s market, AND work at our gardening projects around the county.

This last one is really hard for us. It means that the gardens we design and care for in Rapids, Nekoosa, Port Edwards, Marshfield, Pittsville, Rome, Rudolph, Vesper may look very neglected this year, depending on how long social restrictions are required. This includes gardens at South Wood County Museum, Wildwood Zoo, Wisconsin Rapids Zoo, Pittsville Historical Society, Lester Libraries around the county, Edgewater Haven, Wakely House grounds, Marshfield Fairgrounds, Lowell Center Gardens, Heart of Wisconsin Chamber of Commerce, and more.

We will be exploring ways to offer educational topics through our website and Facebook pages and to staff our Horticultural Hotline. So stay tuned!

We’ll figure out a new way to talk!
