Demonstration Gardens Maintained by Piedmont Master Gardeners
460 Stagecoach Road, Charlottesville, VA 22902
The Piedmont Master Gardeners have established demonstration gardens in the community that serve as outdoor classrooms for teaching best practices. These include a garden on the grounds of Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital (near the cancer treatment center) that is both an educational resource and a welcome respite for patients, visitors and medical professionals. Extension Master Gardeners have planted and continue to maintain a variety of perennials, grasses, and shrubs on the site, including many native species. At the Center at Belvedere, the Piedmont Master Gardeners are developing a garden that demonstrates all aspects of caring for roses and are also planning a garden of native plants for pollinators.
