Community Education Garden

Community Education Garden map

The WSU Chelan-Douglas County Master Gardeners Community Education Garden has themed gardens that demonstrate how gardening and landscaping can be productive and beautiful while employing sustainable gardening practices. It is located at 1100 North Western Avenue in Wenatchee, WA.

Since this is a demonstration garden, please do not pick or remove any plant, flower or vegetable.

WSU Master Gardeners work in the garden most Friday mornings April to October.  Stop by to talk to us!

Read a plant list for each garden, listed under the garden name at the right.

Through continued fundraising efforts and support from the community, the Master Gardeners continue to develop the entire .85 acre area.
