Sturgeon Bay, Wis. (January 6, 2023) – What will the next decade bring in terms of changing trends and their impact on gardening? Learn more when Ed Lyon, Director of Reiman Gardens at Iowa State University, kicks off the Door County Master Gardeners (DCMGA) 2023 Educational Lecture Series on Thursday, January 19, at 6:30 p.m. The live Zoom lecture can be viewed on the big screen at Crossroads at Big Creek or at home via a Zoom link.
Lyon has seen many trends come and go and sometimes even repeat. He notes that most trends have roughly a 10-year lifespan. He believes one of the biggest changes is that upcoming trends will have a greater sense of urgency and will be more often than in the past directed by forces out of our control. “Gardening will become as much a necessary mission as it is recreational,” Lyon said. “Interesting times bring interesting opportunities, and I will give you a look at what they might be.”
The 2023 DCMGA Educational Lecture Series is being presented with support of the Door County Medical Center. The Ed Lyon lecture is presented in collaboration with Crossroads at Big Creek and Wild Ones of the Door Peninsula.
Those who prefer to watch the program at home can request a Zoom link from email@example.com. Please put DCMGA Zoom in the subject line.
