Two years ago I was talking to my cousin and I told her how I was retiring in May of 2015 and I was thinking about where I could fill my time. She told me that she was a Master Gardner and thought I would be good too. I was gardening since I was a little girl.

Impact Story

Peter B

I was lucky to be admitted to the first class at UW-Waukesha, however they didn't have any buildings ready for occupancy yet. We were graciously given space to share at the then-St. Paul College seminary until some of the campus could open a few months later.
