The Master Gardeners of King County maintain about 14 Demonstration, Youth or Outreach gardens. Many of these feature vegetable and fruit growing. Harvests are normally donated to local food banks. Visit us during the growing season to get ideas of what to grow and best techniques. A list of our gardens, including descriptions is available at: Demonstration Gardens.
Local organizations, including those that focus on fruit gardening include the Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation, NWfruit.org, who teams with WSU Mount Vernon, MtVernon.wsu.edu. Their fruit demonstration garden in Mount Vernon, north of Seattle, is open to the public daily, dawn to dusk.
Seattle Tilth (now Tilth Alliance) demonstration gardens are in Seattle (Wallingford, Rainier Beach and Mt. Baker neighborhoods), Kirkland and Auburn. More information is available at their website: www.seattletilth.org/about/tilth-alliance-gardens/aboutgardens
