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.
