Sherwood Demonstration Garden


Welcome to the
Sherwood Demonstration Garden!

As Master Gardeners, we are committed to educating the general public on sustainable horticulture and pest management practices based on traditional, current, and evolving research. It is our goal that the Sherwood Demonstration Garden will provide the public with a hands-on, interactive experience about research-based, sustainable gardening practices specific to the west slope of El Dorado County, appropriate for all ages and cultures, and reflective of a variety of environments and gardening experiences.

There are 16 individual demonstrations gardens ranging from the Shade Garden to the Rock Garden and everything in between!

Come on in!
