If you have a sunny spot in your backyard, no matter the size 

  • You can put a raised bed and add in an amended soil mixture. You are now ready to grow your favorite plants such as flowers, herbs, vegetables or a combination thereof.
  • On your deck, patio or balcony, then you can plant in containers, which come in a wide assortment of sizes. Some even have automatic watering capability.
  • Elevated beds are perfect if you prefer not to bend over or are in a wheelchair. The deep soil provides an environment conducive to growing all types of plants.

The garden shows the use of raised beds made from different types of building materials, containers and elevated beds. It also demonstrates various methods for growing seasonal vegetables. Not only does the garden grow and produce fresh vegetables, there is an herb garden too. The herb garden is made up of annual and perennial culinary herbs.

Our Garden is active for all four seasons and is located next to our office building at
