The Agricultural Research Station has demonstration gardens with a guide to the gardens which details the plants and where they can be bought. In the past, ARS has held field days with demonstrations, talks by UW professors, and the opportunity to taste-test some of the crops. Admission is free. The Research Station is located one-half mile west of the Beltline, on the north side of Mineral Point Rd. 

The gardens are open and free to the public from dawn until dusk, seven days a week.

Booklets for self-guided tours are available for a small donation. The gardens provide a place for UW scientists to research and run experiments on plants.

For volunteer inquiries, general garden questions, or arranging a guide tour, please contact Janet Hedtcke jlrieste@wisc.edu
