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 unique fundraisers. In July 2023, we had GardenFest , including private gardens, live music and food at the hospice garden, plant sale, educational booths, and raffle baskets. There will be another GardenFest July 2024. Past events were Garden Walks and Garden Teas.
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.
