The Site: Wilson Creek Gardens is nestled at the south end of the Willamette Valley in Cottage Grove, Oregon. We steward 7.5 acres with a wide variety of plants, wildlife and micro-climates from which to learn. There is a year round creek and over an acre of edible landscapes, vegetable gardens, orchards, forest gardens, northwest native plants and non-edible ornamentals. To the southwest and north there are mixed species forest. We live ¼ mile from Cottage Grove Reservoir and are surrounded by bike and hiking trails.
Location: 10 miles south of Cottage Grove OR, not near a bus line, so need own transportation.

Not looking good. I think this might be the end. Wait! Is that a tiny ad?
