Grays Harbor Demonstration Garden

Raised beds with potatoes and beans growing on hog wire in demonstration gardenOften referred to as ‘the public face of the WSU Extension Master Gardener Volunteers’, the Grays Harbor County Demonstration Garden is located within the Grays Harbor County Fairgrounds, next to the Floral & Home Arts Building/Pavilion Annex. This national award winning garden has wonderful displays of vegetables and perennials. It is the oldest, largest and most diverse of our demonstration gardens. With easy access, 24/7, the garden is a year-round destination for locals, campers, walkers, county fair-goers and occasional visitors. Even the fairgrounds staff likes to visit!


You will discover new ideas in container gardening, learn about composting, raised beds, drip irrigation and other gardening practices. These displays, created by the WSU Master Gardeners, change yearly and are always full of surprises. You will come away with new and exciting ideas for your own gardens.


>Our goal is to share the riches of this garden with visitors and our communities. We do this in many ways; by sharing produce and vegetable plant seedlings with our local food bank clients & others, by demonstrating how to promote soil health without use of chemicals, through sharing information on plants & gardening with visitors, and by inviting the public in to walk our pathways and enjoy whatever the season offers.
