The demonstration garden at Rogers Farm is a showcase for creative theme gardens, unique plant varieties, innovative designs, and prolific vegetable gardens. Planned, planted, and maintained by Master Gardener Volunteers since 1994, the intent is to demonstrate proper gardening practices and inspire both the novice and seasoned gardener. The gardens are located at 914 Bennoch Road in Old Town and are open to the public between dawn and dusk, 7 days a week.

Free educational programs are hosted in the garden throughout the growing season. For more information or a reasonable accommodation, please contact Kate Garland by calling 207.942.7396 or email katherine.garland@maine.edu.

Upcoming Programs

Open House – every Tuesday in August, 5:30pm-7pm

Visitors can enjoy a self-guided tour of the gardens, volunteers and staff will be available to answer questions, and there will be a little gift from the garden each week for folks to take home. 

These free in-person open house events will be held outside, drizzle or shine. No registration required. In the event of inclement weather, visitors are encouraged to come back the following Tuesday. Additionally, people may drop in anytime during daylight hours for a self-guided visit. Staff or volunteers may not be available for questions on times other than Tuesday evening.

Field Day – Saturday, September 11th, 10am-1pm

We’re busy planning workshops, informational displays and youth activities. Gardening questions and plant samples are always welcome. More information coming soon!
