Demonstration Garden in San Andreas
New Outdoor Classroom for Demonstration Garden
Harper, construction of the structure is now complete. The plan is to have this area
completely finished by our first Open Garden in March.
The UCCE Master Gardener of Calaveras County Demonstration Garden is located at 891 Mountain Ranch Road in San Andreas, CA. In September 2002 this 0.6 acre plot was designated for Master Gardener use by the Board of Supervisors. The Demonstration Garden is the venue for many of the educational events and outreach activities offered to Calaveras County citizens by Master Gardeners.
The Garden consists of several distinct areas each with it's own purpose or theme.
We avoid duplicating plants though they may fit in several categories.
Areas of the garden include:
- Learning Center
- Mission Garden
- Orchard & Espalier trees - Read about our Orchard Renovation Project
- Succulents Garden
- Children's Garden
- Vegetable Garden
- Flower Garden
- Herb Garden
- Table Grapes
- Heritage Rose Garden
- Lawn Alternatives
- Native & 'Wild' Gardens
- Propagation Area
- Waterwise Garden
Currently the garden is open to the public each fourth Saturday of the month, March through October, at Open Garden Days where demonstrations, workshops, children's activities, garden tours and plant problem clinics are held. Check out the Classes & Events webpage for dates.
