Vegetable Demo Gardens


Project Leader- Heather Schoeborn & Gail Holland


The purpose of the Culpeper Demonstration Garden is to provide a highly visible public demonstration garden that illustrates habitat improvement practices for supporting gardening practices. This garden will be used by the Virginia Cooperative Extension - Rapidan River Master Gardeners for demonstration and educational programs that serve a variety of audiences, including homeowners, community groups, and students. Additional resource support from the Carver Center and Town of Culpeper.


Small Farm Field Day

We had a great turnout at Small Farm Field Day on June 12th at our vegetable demo garden. About 200 visitors came to the Carver Center where we gave many tours of our vegetable demonstration garden and shared our ideas. The visitors were also able to tour the garden next to ours which is managed by Virginia State University.
