2011 Fair demo garden
2011 Fair Demon Garden
As always, the Master Gardener demo garden is a teaching garden, and features clear labels of ALL the plant varieties (the only garden at the fair to do so) as well as informational handouts about all aspects of the garden. Master Gardener docents are in the garden at all fair-open times to answer questions, and the Master Gardener information table is located in the garden to provide answers to general gardening questions. The Master Gardener fair demonstration garden is intended to be beautiful, informative, and achievable by home gardeners. We think it is a garden that many people would like to have for their own--this year's garden succeeds again on all fronts!
