Spring Harbor Garden & Greenhouse

We will work in the Garden area harvesting what is left of Summer veggies (i.e. potatoes, onions). The Gardens are on a Middle School Site, however we may not be interacting with students as their classes in the gardens may be at other times. We will prep the Garden beds for the winter. Removing invasive plants like sumac from the property is also one of our projects. working in the Butterfly Garden may be one of our projects. We have a range of outdoor activities in a large garden area. It all helps the Middle School educational program. Wear comfortable clothing that can get dirty and sometimes wet. This site is not wheel chair accessible yet. Digging in the dirt is a common task! we have a Greenhouse and can work inside when weather is rainy! :)

The Spring Harbor gardens and greenhouse offer opportunities to learn the principles of sustainable design and horticulture. We grow foods and construct permaculture buildings to increase the availability of native plants and vegetable seedlings for gardens throughout Dane County.
