Wood's Edge Farm
Martha Peterson, Bernard C. Galgoci
Woods’ Edge Farm is a small “mom-and-pop” nursery propagating native woodland wildflowers. Our nursery grew out of our love of nature and walking through the woods, our love of plants, and a concern for the declining numbers of plants of many woodland species due to both habitat destruction and plants being removed from the wild.
We started our nursery in the fall of 1994, when we collected and planted our first Jack-in-the-Pulpit seeds. In 1996 we built our shade structure, where all of our plants are now grown under 50, 63, or 78 percent shade. In 1998 we filled our first wholesale order, plus began retailing our plants at the Dane County Farmers’ Market.
We sell plants on Saturday mornings in late April and May at the Dane County Farmers’ Market on the Square, where we can usually be found on Mifflin Street between Wisconsin Avenue and State Street.
