Holidays at MEG
Many of you know us as a neighborhood garden center, specializing in plants and products for organic gardening. We're definitely all that - and every year, just in time for the Holidays, we transform...

Inside, amid a lush selection of gift items, we have a workshop where we create garland, swags, wreaths and centerpieces. Our popular Green Grown is a beautiful natural wreath made entirely of local materials (even the wreath ring is manufactured in Wisconsin). We also make a fully compostable local swag, creatively imagined "grab-n-go" containers and pots, kissing balls, and centerpieces. Plus, we carry everything you could want for DIY natural decor. If you go for garland, we offer two local choices, as well as mixed and custom options. Our garland is both beautiful and well constructed, it'll hang in there all season!

For our gift offerings,we strive to keep it unique, local, recycled or handmade. You will find fantastic gifts for gardeners, birders, kids and people of all stripes who appreciate something a little different.

Outdoors, we will be filled to the brim with responsibly sourced Christmas trees of all shapes and sizes. We carry a great selection of sustainably grown trees from Osseo and Balsam Lake, WI. Ask us about the different types of trees we carry; we're sure you'll find the perfect one.

SAD NEWS: For many years now, we have been selling what we call the Organic Free Range Christmas Tree. This year, our intrepid North Woods environmental activist, Jeff Forester, has had life events occur that prevent him from cutting and collecting the understory balsam trees that are part of a fire prevention program that he helped to build. Jeff intends to partner with the DNR and private land owners again next year, but sadly, this year we are without these crazy Charlie Brown trees. Best to you, Jeff, and we’ll see you with those Free Rangers next year.
