Albany Demonstration Garden

Welcome to the Albany Demonstration Garden

The Albany Garden is a small but enthusiastic group of gardeners whose primary purpose aligns with the MG program-- to bring research based information to the home and community gardener.

To that end we maintain two beds in the community garden that serves the city of Albany residents. We have one planted as a square foot garden growing vegetables in the typical climate of Albany (ie shady, windy) and the other planted with a mix of plants that we hoped would encourage home gardeners toward "edible landscaping" mixing some of our Alameda County All stars like Heuchera and some natives like Penstemon with edibles/ herbs. We planted a cover crop of favas as well. 


Our Garden Talks

We hold hour long workshops (talk + Q&A) on a variety of topics from June through August (weather permitting). Our 2020 Garden Talks schedule includes talks covering vegetables, container gardening on June 7, garden ergonomics on July 12 and seed saving on August 23

The free talks begin on Sundays at 11:00 am. Be sure to bring your questions and and plant samples of concern; we'll hold a plant doctor session after the talk!
