The Spooner Agriculture Research Station Teaching and Display Garden will host visitors for a final workshop on end-of-the-season activities Saturday, Sept. 7, from 10 a.m. to noon.

This garden session will be held at the Teaching and Display Garden and focus on seed saving, fall garden activities, tender bulb storage, garlic planting, spring bulbs, and what was learned during this garden season.

This year’s theme, “Re-use, recycle, and re-imagine,” comes from the All-America Selections. The displays have been created with this theme in mind, organizers said.

The Teaching and Display Garden is one of eight in Wisconsin that display vegetable and flower varieties who have been awarded this designation as an outstanding cultivar.

Participants should take their own lawn chair for the Meet Me in the Garden seminar. The session is free and open to the public and will be held rain or shine – so all should dress accordingly.

In the event of inclement weather, the program will be held at the Station Building at 1035 E. Maple Street (Hwy. 70), Spooner.

The garden is located at 780 Orchard Ln., 1.5 miles east of Spooner on Hwy. 70 or 1/2 mile west of the Hwys. 70/53 interchange. Garden meeting signs will be posted.
