Hands On Learning In The Garden

DG Pruning Wk 2015
Our demonstration garden was established to provide hands-on community education for sustainable gardening practices.

We “Cultivate Knowledge” by teaching irrigation, composting, integrated pest management (IPM), raised bed planting, pruning, weed management and more. Check the classes and events menu for current class offerings.

The garden is located adjacent to the UC Cooperative Extension of Santa Cruz County building at 1430 Freedom Blvd, Suite E, Watsonville.

Please park by the rear entrance to the garden. From Freedom Blvd, turn east onto Crestview, Lft on Madison.

Visit or volunteer on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:00am to noon. Masks, hand sanitizing, gloves and social distancing are required. If you would like to inquire about special arrangements for other groups to view the garden, contact us here
