Demonstration Gardens

A half-acre demonstration garden provides a platform for teaching natural agriculture and organic gardening methods.  On-site and school-based educational programs will provide hands-on field experience in basic gardening as well as introductions to medicinal and native plant gardening, permaculture design, orchard planning and maintenance, and ornamental horticulture. Targeted audiences include area residents as well as children and adults in low-income communities. Additional off-site/back yard instruction and assistance will be given to families wishing to start home gardens as a means of augmenting their food resources.
