About the Garden
The Master Gardeners of Nevada County have a Demonstration Garden located on the grounds of the Nevada Irrigation District in Grass Valley. The garden features 1.5 acres with several targeted growing areas, including:
- Foothill Mediterranean Garden
- Cottage Garden
- Rock Garden
- Raised Bed Gardens
- Hoop House
- Oak Habitat and Native Plant Meadow
- Evergreen Edge
- Compost area
This mission of the Demonstration Garden is to demonstrate research-based, sustainable gardening practices for home gardeners with an emphasis on plant communities, best suited to the microclimates and
soils found in the Sierra Nevada foothills. We support regional biodiversity, conservation of resources and composting to promote healthy soil life.
