August 20, 2011Want to make your green thumb even greener? Join us for the annual Urban Horticulture Field Day at the University of Wisconsin – Madison, West Madison Agricultural Research Stations – Trial and Demonstration Gardens, held, every year, on the third Saturday, in August.
It’s is a great place to get new ideas and answers to perplexing problems, sample fresh produce and tour one of the area’s most extensive collections of flower and vegetable varieties, including many that haven’t yet appeared in seed catalogs.
The field day is sponsored by UW – West Madison Agricultural Research Station staff, researchers at the College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, University of Wisconsin-Extension staff, and Master Gardener Volunteers. The West Madison Agricultural Research Station is located at 8502 Mineral Point Road, about a mile west of the beltline. Admission and parking are free.
