Every summer in the hospice garden we divide overgrown plants and also make room for new species. The plants are potted, spend some time in the garden's nursery, and twice a year we hold a plant sale, the proceeds of which are used for garden related projects.
For several years we have worked with the Howard Young Foundation to host a "Garden Walk" featuring local private gardens. Recently we have held a "Garden Tea", an event that highlights the hospice garden during its peak beauty and provides a classic English tea party.
Our monthly meetings include hands on activities, field trips, and guest speakers. We have constructed bat houses, robin shelves, garden art, and mason bee houses. Our visits have been to Wisconsin botanical gardens, farms, and nurseries. Recent speakers have covered hydroponics, butterfly gardens, growing mushrooms, and sharpening garden tools.
