Come experience what it might have been like to garden as the Pioneers did. Champoeg’s Kitchen Garden is representative of what was growing in a family’s garden on the farm in the late nineteenth century. Trellis structures are hand-built from trees cut locally and there is a white-washed fence line. All the vegetables, flowers and herbs are those that would have been available from the 1860s -1880s in the Willamette Valley.

Master Gardener volunteers help to maintain this beautiful garden similarly to the pioneer families. This involved lots of seed planting, weeding, edging, pruning, watering, harvesting and seed saving. Other opportunities may include pest management, historic gardening demonstrations during park events, and assistance with presentations on pioneer gardening.
