Learning Gardens


The Hidden Valley Camp garden will provide a teaching tool for Camp staff to teach the fundamentals of growing and providing your own fresh vegetables from the ground up to harvesting and preparing. Gardens also provide an exercise and other outdoor activities to meet the needs of the youth where obesity is becoming a major problem.


The CCE Teaching GardenĀ is a living classroom, it educates the community about gardening techniques, plant varieties, pollinators, and other topics. Located at 323 Owego Street in Montour Falls, the garden contains more than 60 fruiting varieties, a pollinator hotel, composting demonstrations, and more. We conduct vegetable variety trials to help Cornell University find better crops and have numerous permaculture methods on display. Master Gardeners care for the Teaching Garden and anyone in the community can use it.
