The Demonstration Garden located at Grange Park behind the Mid-Columbia Libraries Kennewick Branch is a community asset of beauty and inspiration. An ongoing project of the Master Gardeners of Benton and Franklin Counties, the garden was developed to demonstrate, test, and teach gardening in its many forms in our unique climate and soils. The garden is supported by Master Gardener volunteers and is funded entirely by donations from individuals, organizations, and local businesses.
Visitors to the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden can explore more than two dozen distinctive and ever changing theme gardens. The gardens currently feature over 50 trees, 800 roses, 100 shrubs, and even a children’s garden at the serene 2 1/2-acre site. This past year over 7,000 pounds of fresh produce was donated to the Tri-City Food Bank from the vegetable garden.
Home Depot (East Kennewick Store) recently replaced six raised beds in the Entry Way Garden. It was exciting to see the Home Depot orange shirts arriving with materials, equipment and many workers. They immediately went to work and in five hours six beds were removed and replaced. Home Depot has continued to support the Demonstration Garden for many years. It is great to see such support from the community that allows the Demonstration Garden to continue to be a great place to visit and learn.
Thank you to Home Depot and all of our volunteers!
