The Frontier Co-op Learning Garden took shape in 2013, thanks to the efforts (and muscles!) of our dedicated volunteers who constructed raised planters where food crops are grown and harvested. Watered by a massive rain barrel, the garden is a showcase for urban gardening, used to educate on nutrition and locally-sourced food, and is harvested for donations to our local food pantries.
Throughout the summer, Master Gardeners offer their gardening expertise and teach many hands-on classes and activities for families. The Learning Garden is designed to be accessible and interactive for people of all ages and abilities. Its five raised masonry beds are roughly 2-1/2’ high and 36” apart to allow for wheelchair access. For home brewers, the garden also has two giant trellises growing hops for beer brewing classes and events.
The Frontier Co-op Learning Garden is supported by the Linn County Extension Master Gardeners and Frontier Co-Op.
