Serving Wisconsin Growers Since 1984
Membership in WGPG offers many benefits, including:
Informative club newsletters
Receive periodic newsletters containing WGPG news and information about upcoming events.
Club Competitions, Awards and Prizes
Reduced entry fees for fruit at WGPG supported weigh-offs
As a member of WGPG, you can enter your fruit in weigh-offs that we support at reduced entry fees.
Annual club seed distribution
This includes seeds from the previous years fruit produced by our members. We encourage all members to control their crosses and contribute as many seeds as possible to the club for this annual exchange.
Invitation to all club events
Events include seminars, patch tours and picnics, business meetings, and all fall weigh-offs. In the summer, we usually have a patch tour and picnic, where we visit pumpkin patches in Wisconsin to see what everyone has growing, and talk about pumpkins!
Spring Meeting and Beginner's Seminar
Every spring, we have our annual spring meeting and beginner's seminar, where new pumpkin growers can come and learn how to grow giant pumpkins, and get involved with the club.
Each growing season culminates in the fall with the annual weigh-offs. Our winter meeting is spent getting ready for the following year. We often have a winter meeting if there are important issues going on that are best discussed as a group.
Growers Helping Growers
Last but certainly not least, access to the “Growers Helping Growers” philosophy among the membership. You will get updated member lists with contact information for all members and are encouraged to ask questions, exchange ideas, and growing tips. It is not just all about growing pumpkins. It's about making friends, learning, and having fun too!
