Veterans Memorial Senior Center Garden
The Master Gardeners plant and maintain a demonstration garden behind the Veterans Memorial Senior Center (VMSC) building. This allows us to offer hands-on demonstrations in conjunction with a Speaker Series, share two garden beds with special needs groups, and donate the edible produce grown at the garden to the Senior Center Chef for meals for the seniors.
The garden provides a model for community members on environmentally sound and sustainable techniques and principles such as water-wise applications, drought-tolerant plantings and growing a variety of edible plants year-round.
The UC Master Gardener Program of San Mateo and San Francisco Counties has partnered with the Redwood City Veterans Memorial Senior Center to develop an educational program of regular gardening classes, along with a demonstration garden designed specifically for the local environment.
