Raised beds are used to enable amending the soil. Row covers and other Spring sheltering methods are used to protect young plants from elements and birds and to give plants a good start on the growing season. Various gardening techniques are demonstrated in the garden including square foot intensive gardening, trellising to save space, and tomato training.
The garden is watered both by drip and overhead irrigation. Weeding is done by hand and insects are washed off with water or handpicked.
Produce is donated to Second Harvest and to area missions. The Master Gardeners encourage all gardeners to “Plant a Row” for the hungry.
The composting area demonstrates various styles of composters as well as graduated compost storage areas where prunings from the rest of the Demonstration Garden are piled, chopped, and allowed to decompose for use back in the Garden.
