The Community Demonstration Garden showcases a variety of sustainable gardening and landscaping techniques in a dynamic space.

The Moreno Valley Community Demonstration Garden is a multi-use space created to educate the community and equip them with the expertise to implement the size, scope, and scale of garden or landscaping appropriate for their residential setting.

The Garden feature a variety of elements that residents can replicate in their own homes by purchasing items at local retailers or online, including raised planter beds, tower/wall planters, virmiculture, composting equipment, seedling racks, fruit trees, and a pollinator’s perennial garden. These elements demonstrate sustainable approaches to residential food production with seasonally appropriate vegetables and fruit as well as horticultural "best practices" for home gardens to illustrate the importance of proper soil preparation, trellising, staking, and efficient irrigation practices, and use of plant species well-suited to the Inland Empire climate.
