The Donation Garden at Medford Leas promotes education, environmental stewardship, food production and soil management. Through the hands on production of vegetables, the Master Gardeners involved see and experience what can occur when a seed is planted and grows. Upon harvesting, the produce is given to local charities for distribution. Since its inception, the donation garden has donated over 9,300 pounds of produce. The gardeners gain expertise which can then be used on the helpline to help clients with their gardens.
