Master Gardeners work closely with the staff at Brain Injury Network of the Bay Area (BINBA) to develop a horticultural therapy curriculum and garden work areas that are adapted for the special needs of their clients.  We practice and teach sustainable and permaculture gardening techniques, integrated pest management, and organic gardening.

The garden features espaliered fruit trees, a habitat garden, a rain garden, a native bee project and a compost project, including worm bin composting. It includes raised beds planted with tomatoes, corn, squash, beans, pumpkins, chard and lettuces. A recently installed native plant garden along the Corte Madera Creek Marsh, on College of Marin property in Larkspur, includes a hedge row, meadow, shrubs, perennials, grasses, and wildflowers.

 

A plant sale during the holidays offers succulent plants in gift planters, and future plans include propagation and sales of California native plants in order to support ongoing garden maintenance.
