Welcome to the Heritage Garden Program's website. This program is dedicated to creating water-wise landscapes and gardens in the arid portion of the Columbia River Basin of Washington State.

In addition to water conservation, Heritage Gardens incorporate and honor unique natural and cultural features of this area.

This website presents a tour of existing Heritage Gardens, explains how to create and maintain your own Heritage Garden and how to achieve certification to show off your efforts and dedication to using our resources wisely.

The Heritage Garden Program is brought to you by the Benton and Franklin Conservation Districts in partnership with the Columbia Basin Chapter of the Washington Native Plant Society.

We will help you through the process. Our services are free.
