A special one and one-half-hour program on Pioneer Public Television this Saturday will recognize 20 years of the popular gardening series, “Prairie Yard and Garden (PYG),” which is produced by Media Services at the University of Minnesota, Morris.

Creator of the original program and the show’s executive producer Roger Boleman, along with PYG host, Sue Gooch, will be interviewed by past PYG host, Jim Thoreen, from 4:30 to 6 p.m. Saturday, March 10. In addition to the normally scheduled program live studio segments will invite viewers to call Gooch with gardening questions which she and other guests, the New London Master Gardeners, will answer. There will be short video segments from the early years of PYG along with the live portions.

The program will air on Pioneer Public Television, channel 10, Appleton.
