Welcome to the
Pleasant Hill Instructional Garden (PHIG)
Water Conservation Demonstration Garden

Starting in Spring of 2007 as a landscape design applications class project in the Mt. Diablo Adult Education Gardening Program, in less than a year PHIG went  from a plan on paper to the beginnings of an over 4000 square feet demonstration garden for water conservation and habitat restoration.  The official groundbreaking for the garden took place on Sept 15, 2007, Pleasant Hill's Community Service Day. Thanks to donations and an all-volunteer effort  with the assistance of many community organizations, the garden now hosts a kiosk structure, an arbor, benches, tools sheds, storage workbench for classes and events, planting beds, pathways, a composting system, and a variety of drought tolerant and California native plants on what was formerly a scrap of wasteland used for overflow parking.
