The Natural Gardens at Pacific Community Park provide an opportunity to view natural gardening techniques in action, see native plants in the landscape and take inspiration home to your own garden.

The demonstration gardens are meant to show different ways to practice earth-friendly techniques at home. Natural gardening reduces the use of synthetic chemicals to increase beneficial organism activity, enhance habitat and wildlife areas, and contribute to the overall health of the community. There are eight beautiful backyard example gardens that fit any yard size or preference. The gardens are located at NE 18th St & NE 172nd Ave in Vancouver, WA (Click for Google Map).

We have interactive maps of five of the demonstration gardens here online, along with a full plant library for information about each of the native plants used.
