Our Demonstration Garden

The vision of hands-on demonstrations for the general public spurred Master Gardeners to establish different types of gardens on site at the St. Charles County Extension Center. The gardens give residents a place to learn about plants that do well in St. Charles County, as well as to see gardening techniques and methods. Master Gardeners also use the gardens in many of the gardening classes they offer.  Demonstration Gardens Plot.
