East Farm Demonstration Garden
2097 Kingstown Road | South Kingstown, RI 02881
The East Farm Demo Garden on Rte 108 in Kingston experiments with different growing techniques; to demonstrate sustainable gardening to fellow Master Gardeners and the RI residents; and to produce vegetables for local food pantries. Volunteer Master Gardeners operate under the guidelines of the Good Agricultural Practices Program (GAP) which strives to ensure the garden produce is free of pathogens. The garden consists of vegetable beds, an herb garden, a vertical garden, raised beds including on designed for people with physical limitations, container-growing experiments, and a mix of perennial and native flowers. The garden also has a demonstration composting operation and a state-of-the art irrigation system. Every year, a variety of gardening techniques are demonstrated and the public is invited to visit on Saturday morning for tours, talks, children’s activities, and have their garden soil tested.
