Master Gardeners have been involved with this project since 2004. The site includes a demonstration kitchen garden with vegetables and herbs representing varieties grown by early settlers in Oregon. There are also apple trees, grapes, hops, herbs and flowers.
A heritage rose garden, which was originally planted in 1992, has been redesigned and renovated. There are around 19 varieties of heirloom roses growing in the gardens. Most of them bloom in early spring, with the best show beginning mid to late May.
The demonstration kitchen garden showcases the sustainable gardening practices that the pioneers used and serves as a teaching tool for the public. Master Gardeners make educational presentations to student groups and other visitors to the site.
