St Louis City Talk

The Brightside demonstration garden of St. Louis is nearing completion. While providing a pleasant space for the public to enjoy the garden was constructed with the intent to teach about environmentally friendly and sustainable methods for growing a green garden.

The Brightside demonstration garden at the intersection of Southwest Avenue, Shenandoah Avenue, Kingshighway and Vandeventer in the Southwest Garden Neighborhood is nearing completion and looking quite inviting and eye-catching:


    Built in 2011, the Brightside St. Louis Demonstration Garden features microcosms of Missouri’s wetland, glade, prairie and woodland habitats. The garden is designed to help educate visitors on best planting and environmentally sustainable practices – ones that can be implemented in yard and neighborhood gardens.

    Our goal with the demonstration garden, growing at the corner ofButterfly on milkweed at the Brightside St. Louis demonstration gardenKingshighway and Shenandoah, is to help build environmental awareness and cultivate environmental stewardship through educational workshops and interpretative signage.
