Posted by Matt Privratsky '11, Walker on Sunday, Apr. 24, 2011

“Prairie Yard and Garden” (PY&G), on Pioneer Public Television, will be at the Horticulture Display Garden at the West Central Research and Outreach Center (WCROC) in Morris on Thursday, April 28, 2011. Bernie Angus, WCROC landscape gardener, will take Sue Gooch, guest host, on a tour discussing some of the unusual plants homeowners can incorporate into their own landscapes.

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.
