Master Gardener Associations all over the state do many great things. Here is a highlight from the 2013 Annual Report:
We exhibited an educational display booth at the Bayfield Co. Fair featuring Container Gardening. Flowering and foliage plants were included in various types of containers. In addition, the walls of the booth contained photos of containers use by MGVs. A three-page UW-Extension handout was available at the booth which offered ideas and guidance on doing container gardening. About 150 of these handouts were picked up by fair goers. The fair does not allow the booths to be staffed so we were not able to have direct contact with the people viewing the display, but a couple of people later asked for more information on container gardening. The booth received a blue ribbon.
