Master Gardener Demonstration Gardens
MG Foundation funds support children's programs,
Youth garden and youth activities during summer break.
The Youth Garden at Raab Park in Poulsbo, Washington, was begun in 1997 by the combined efforts of the City of Poulsbo, individual Master Gardeners and service organizations with funding from grant sources.
The continued improvement of the garden and success of the Children’s Program is supported
by the work of WSU Master Gardeners and community involvement.
Master Gardeners tend a demonstration garden for the education of individuals, families and youth at Blueberry park and organize free activities in the summer open to school age children.
The “Kids Cultivate” summer program is active learning and outdoor fun where kids can water, dig in the dirt, do crafts and learn about different plants, veggies and garden creatures.
Blueberry Park features 7 acres of walking trails, a picnic shelter and playground and was constructed using Low Impact Development techniques.

During the summer, an Open House is offered with tours and classes for children. Some past topics presented are: planting seeds or planting a flower pot, birds and their habitats, butterfly life cycles, build a bug/insect, worms and composting and more.

The garden is an educational exhibit of different ways to plant and grow vegetables at home. Most crops in the garden are edible, including some of the flowers.
The Heritage Garden is a special community project to restore and preserve a piece of Kitsap County history for future generations and provide an education experience to its visitors.
The Heritage Garden demonstrates organic practices included Integrated Pest Management (IPM) and spotlights varieties and techniques especially appropriate for the home gardener to be successful and maximize production.
