Demonstration Garden

The Open Space Visitor Center Traditions Garden

OSVC demo garden

In early 2008 we created a demonstration garden at the Open Space Visitor Center that represents several early farming methods and the foods that were collected and cultivated in New Mexico. This is intended to be an educational garden where groups can actively take part in its development and observe its successes and failures. Farming methods that will be represented are terraced arroyo, waffle garden, cobble mulch garden, and orchards.

Location & Hours

The Open Space Visitor Center is located at 6500 Coors Blvd. NW between Montaño Rd. and Paseo del Norte at the end of Bosque Meadows Rd.

The Center is open Tuesday through Sunday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM and closed Mondays.
