Jackson County Master Gardeners are invited to tour the Stout family’s Ashland 1/2-acre garden of 51 raised vegetable beds, 22 fruit trees, numerous flowers and berries, and a greenhouse on Thursday, June 22 at 6:30pm. The garden is cared for by Trina Stout (2022), her brother, and her dad, all of whom will be present to give the tour and answer questions. The address is 356 Otis Street, Ashland, OR 97520. Bring sun protection, water, and comfortable shoes, as it can be quite warm that time of year and time of day.
Accessibility information: the garden is in a field behind the house. From street parking, there is either a steep driveway up or a set of eight stairs with a handrail. This leads across a small lawn, and then to a slightly inclined path of pavers leading to the backyard. From there, there are two more steps, then the paver path continues to the garden. The raised bed portion of the garden is flat ground covered in sliverless bark mulch. Adjacent to the orchard is flat-ish but uneven grass. There is a slight incline up some compacted grass to get to the greenhouse.
