The NWHS planted and continues to maintain the Dahl-Roeder Memorial Garden located in Wilson Park, Menomonie. The park was established in honor of Janice Dahl and Darrel Roeder. Janice was a NWHS founder member and our first editor-in-chief of the Northern Star newsletter. Darrel was a past NWHS president and also served on the board of directors. Each spring members meet at the garden for our annual cleanup and maintenance event. Individual members perform general care throughout the growing season, with a special thank you going to Jan Harvey who is especially active in keeping the garden attractive.
Darrel’s wife Ann, dad Don, and granddaughter Kaya were all there working when the garden was first planted. Besides planting hostas that Darrel loved, he also had a passion for dwarf conifers, peonies, clematis and martagon lilies – all of which are part of this memorial garden.
Next NWHS EventNo Events
Due to the corona virus lockdown, we will take future events one at a time and evaluate conditions closer to each date to determine if they will be held. Some events have already been cancelled. Cancelled events have the word CANCELLED in the event title. We will try to hold as many events as we safely can, following the most recent guidelines on preventing the spread.
Some events may be postponed. We may have an opportunity later this summer (if conditions allow) to participate with EC garden Club and maybe EC Master Gardeners with a plant sale. Keep checking the events on the web page for the latest information on events.
