Education and Training

Green Building Education

The City partners with other organizations to provide  demonstration projects on green building topics such as the Water Wise Garden listed below:


Alton Baker Park Water Wise Landscape Demonstration Garden

Are you interested in the learning how to reduce water use and capture storm water in your garden without sacrificing beauty? Visit the Water Wise Landscape Demonstration Garden in Alton Baker Park to see water-saving plants, landscape design and rainwater catchment strategies for residential use. It’s located next to the community gardens and is available for viewing during regular park hours.


The Garden is the product of remarkable community collaboration between the City of Eugene, EWEB, Nearby Nature, Landcurrent, Schirmer Satre Group and other firms that donated goods and services.
