The Community Demonstration Garden is run by the Master Gardeners Program, an OSU Extension Service program. The focus of this garden is on teaching the local community how to use safe, sustainable gardening practices to grow food and native plants. The garden serves the local community, acting as a community resource that helps spread the use of sustainable gardening practices, increases local food production and security, improves the local ecosystem, contributes to self-sufficiency, and creates and strengthens community relationships.
