CULTIVATE. EDUCATE. CELEBRATE.
The mission of the Truckee Demonstration Garden is to cultivate a community committed to local food production and increased local food security, through education and demonstration of high-altitude gardening techniques.
Educate the community on sustainable, high-altitude gardening techniques
Encourage food security + self-reliance by growing fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs
Inspire the spread of more home gardens throughout the local community
Provide fresh, locally grown food to the Sierra Community House (formerly known as Project Mana)
Promote a beautiful + vibrant space for our community to enjoy
Wednesdays starting at 5:00PM
We have partnered with the UCCE Master Gardeners of Lake Tahoe to offer a series of FREE gardening classes each season. All participants will receive starter plants to take home for their own gardens.
3rd Saturday of each month | 9am - 1pm
No experience is required to volunteer - learn as you go! Come if you have the greenest thumb or have never gardened before. The Demonstration Garden is a great place to get hands-on high-altitude gardening experience, while also giving back to the community.

THE GARDEN IS LOCATED...
in the Truckee Regional Park. From Brockway Road, turn onto Estates Drive (at the Truckee Skate Park) and head straight into the park entrance (rather than following the road to the right). Park there and follow the dirt path (indicated by the white footsteps below) that leads towards the "Music in the Park" venue. All are welcome!
