The Ridges Launches Door County Community Garden with “Family Vegetable Garden Fun”

The Ridges Sanctuary in Baileys Harbor is sponsoring the first of a series of “Family Vegetable Garden Fun” programs on Wednesday, June 9, 2010 from 4 – 5 pm.

Ever wanted your own veggie garden but just didn’t know where to begin? Bring the whole family and get right in the dirt! Help The Ridges fill their little community garden and come back later to nurture and then harvest it! You can even plant your own seeds to grow at home—no prior experience needed. Please meet outside the Nature Center. Donations are greatly appreciated.

Also, don’t forget to join The Ridges for the rest of the Vegetable Garden series.

  • Veggie Planting: June 9 at 4-5pm
  • Nurturing the Garden: TBA
  • Harvest Picnic: TBA

The Ridges Sanctuary, a non-profit nature preserve, is located just north of Baileys Harbor on County Highway Q. Trails are open to the public year round for a small fee (members may hike at no charge). The Nature Store, featuring a variety of nature-related books, puppets, T-shirts and gift items, is open for the season. Naturalist-led hikes in the Sanctuary are scheduled Mondays-Saturdays at 1:30pm for the summer.
