Door County Master Gardeners Association, Inc.
The Garden Door

Open Daily Sunrise to Sunset
Free to the Public

The Garden Door was created in 2004 at the UW Peninsular Research Station which is a few miles north of Sturgeon Bay on Highway 42.  The garden is designed and maintained by members of the Door County Master Gardeners Volunteers.
The garden is free and open to the public daily from dawn til dusk.

 It has a fairie garden, double kaleidoscope, pond with koi, a children's play area, butterfly garden, wind and sound tunnel, grasses area with bottle trees, wences, annual and perennial beds. To the north you will find a community garden where the DCMGV and research/extension office personnel can plant and harvest crops each summer.
Each spring six plots are used by the third graders in Sturgeon Bay to plant pioneer and Native American crops. In fall, as fourth graders they harvest the crops and learn about grinding corn, pressing apples, herbs, etc.

      Trees are the oldest and the largest living things on earth.  Some are weird, some extraordinary, some gorgeous, and some shaped by the human hand to fascinate and amuse. Please enjoy these  images–or better yet, take a walk in the woods and greet them in person with appreciation.
