The raised gardens are located in the rear left corner of The Garden Door, redesigned in 2015. They have been used to grow a variety of vegetables over the years – including beans, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, summer squash and more – and the selection changes seasonally, depending on what crops are of interest to the committee overseeing and tending the beds.

You can also see various raised gardens and the plants – vegetables and flowers – that fill them at The Garden Door, located at the Peninsular Agricultural Research Station, 4312 Hwy 42, a few miles north of Sturgeon Bay. While you’re there, stroll around the rest of the grounds to learn about several other types of gardens, all tended by volunteers from the Door County Master Gardeners Association.
