“Prairie Yard and Garden” (PY&G), on Pioneer Public Television, will return to the historic River Glen Gardens on Thursday, March 31, 2011. Host Larry Zilliox will be taken on a tour by Ron Weinhold, who will discuss plants in the fall landscape.

Created and produced at the University of Minnesota, Morris, PY&G is in its 24th year of traveling the state tapping researchers, gardening and nursery professionals, educators, and ordinary backyard gardeners for their expertise in horticulture, landscaping, and a variety of gardening topics in a sometimes difficult and frustrating growing region. PY&G has been one of the number one rated programs of national or local origination on Pioneer for the last few years. The program airs Thursday evenings at 7:30 p.m. January through April, with rebroadcasts Mondays at 1 p.m. and Saturdays at 4:30 p.m.

Pioneer Public Television, a Public Broadcasting System (PBS) affiliate, serves more than 375,000 households across Minnesota, South Dakota, and Iowa.
