This year’s PBS Wisconsin Garden & Landscape Expo is going virtual due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We are usually at this well-attended event in person, but this year we’re also making a virtual appearance. This is a great opportunity for those of you who are too far away to visit in person, as attending the event this year is free and open to the public (register here).
LTI’s Garden Featured at the Expo
We are proud to be one of a handful of gardens to be featured at this year’s Garden Expo. Starting February 20, everyone will be able to visit our garden for a virtual tour. Simply register and then visit the garden tour page. You’ll be able to see some great interactive exhibits, including our in-ground walipini greenhouse.
LTI’s Livestreams at the Expo
In addition to having a virtual booth at the event, we’ll be live streaming four different times over the weekend. It’d be great to field questions and hear from you during these times.

Support the Institute
We usually make a nice income from the Garden Expo, both from sales of our beeswax food wraps and memberships, not to mention donations. We’d be grateful if you’d consider supporting us in this unusual time.
