The demonstration garden at Rogers Farm is a showcase for creative theme gardens, unique plant varieties, innovative designs, and prolific vegetable gardens. 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 open to the public between dawn and dusk, 7 days a week. Free educational programs are hosted in the garden throughout the growing season. No registration is required. All programs are held rain or shine. In poor weather, programs will be offered in the large red barn across the street from the gardens.
