Sunnyvale Teaching and Demo Garden
This garden showcases vegetables and ornamentals growing in raised beds, in-ground beds, and containers, with an emphasis on using recycled, recyclable or salvaged materials.
Address: 433 Charles Street, Sunnyvale, CA 94086 (View map)
Directions: Our garden is located in the front southeast corner of Sunnyvale’s Charles Street Community Garden.
Visiting hours: We hold monthly talks in the garden and are available then to answer questions. Our workday is on Tuesday morning from 9:30–11:30 a.m. when you can observe us and ask questions. Our plot is also viewable when the Community Garden is open, but as with any community garden, please be respectful of our—and all of our neighbors'—plots.
