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.

If you are headng north and see the brown historical marker signs, you've gone too far!
