Started in 1997, the Demonstration Garden is a great resource of gardening information throughout the spring, summer and fall. Growing a bounty of beautiful vegetables with different gardening techniques, it has donated over 7,000 pounds of produce to local food banks each of the last two years. Master Gardener volunteers tend the garden and share information with the public on growing vegetables in our area. Stop by and visit the garden, it is located adjacent to the Extension Office on Sagamore Parkway South.
The harvesting has begun for 2017. Last year over 5,000 lbs of produce were contributed to local food pantries. We again have some cover crops planted to renew some sections of the gardens, and the new watering system is installed.
