Located directly behind the Tennessee Extension Central Region Office building (5201 Marchant Dr, Nashville, 37211) on the campus of Ellington Agricultural Center, is the Master Gardeners of Davidson County's sprawling Demonstration & Educational Gardens.
The main area of the garden features a beautiful rain garden erected to mitigate and correct erosion which is surrounded by an outdoor classroom as well as a variety of technique-based beds, including an herb garden, shade garden, vertical garden, fairy garden and our award-winning square foot garden.
A quick walk around the garden will take you to a southern cottage garden, a perennial garden featuring many native plants, the bee nectar garden featuring plants that provide nectar and pollen for the many species of bees in our area, the butterfly garden planted with nectar and host plants for butterflies, the gazebo which is planted with daffodils, iris, clematis and knockout roses, and the satellite dish garden which provides xeriscape gardening ideas, and a three-dash bin compost exhibit.
