An Indiana State University community project is growing a sense of
community while helping fight hunger.
For the past five years, Indiana State has provided land for expert and novice
gardeners to plant 10 foot by 10 foot, 10 foot by 15 foot or 20 foot by 20 foot
plots free of charge. In return, gardeners promise to tend to their plots, plant
only annuals and refrain from using pesticides, herbicides and fungicides.
Participants are encouraged to donate a portion of the produce raised to the
food pantry of their choice.
- Location: 219 N 11th Street
- Growing season: April - October
- Cost: We ask every gardener to donate a portion of their produce to the food pantry of their choice.
