Heritage Gardens are landscaped areas designed to honor the cultural and natural heritage of the Columbia River Basin while utilizing sustainable gardening practices.
- Promote the use of native plants especially those of cultural significance;
- Promote low-water use landscaping & efficient irrigation methods; and
- Educate our community about the history and biodiversity of the Columbia River Basin
The Heritage Garden Program is brought to our community by Benton Conservation Districts in partnership with the South Yakima Conservation District. For assistance with developing your own Heritage Garden contact us. Funding for Heritage Gardens in Yakima County is provided by a grant from the Washington State Department of Ecology through the Yakima Basin Integrated Plan’s Municipal Subgroup.
