We hope you and your family can join us for this year’s
Urban Horticulture Open House set for Saturday, August 15th from 10 am – 2 pm at the
West Madison Agricultural Research Station located at 8502 Mineral Point Rd. Verona, WI.
This year’s open house offers a great opportunity to visit and learn about potato variety trials and other horticulture crop research and demonstrations from local experts. There’s something for the whole family to glean and enjoy from exhibits, tastings and samples of fruit and vegetable to touring the latest research plots highlighting 200 different cultivars of vegetables and many cultivars of cold-hardy table and wine grapes.
University and Extension experts will be on hand to share their knowledge and answer your horticultural questions from potatoes to pollinators.
This should be a great time to pause, unwind from the fields and soak in the mid-summer abundance and horticultural diversity of Southern Wisconsin. Dress for spending time outdoors rain or shine. Hope to see you there!
