Our Gardens


What are Community and Demonstration Gardens? ~

community garden is a single piece of land worked, maintained, and harvested by a group of people. The Suffolk Master Gardeners Association currently participates in a pollinator garden at Westminster Reformed Presbyterian Church. Most of the produce grown in these gardens is sold or distributed to benefit families in the community.

A demonstration garden is one that is set-up for the purposes of teaching through working example. There are currently 3 demonstration gardens that are maintained by SMGA, including the one at Sleepy Hole Park.

We are very proud of our gardens and hope that you will stop by for a visit soon! In the drop down menu click on the garden’s name to find out more about it.
