Master Gardeners Demonstration Garden

One of the most popular public gardens in Puget Sound, the Snohomish Master Gardener Demonstration Garden, is under renovation, but open and we invite you to visit and watch our progress. There is already much to learn from the initial plantings, including plant pairing, the use of horizontal and vertical plantings, shrubs and plants for every season. As the work continues, you will see layers of color emerge in the form of both flowers and foliage. We are committed to public education at every stage of the garden development and encourage groups and individuals to take the Arboretum tour.
