Community Garden

Growing a sense of community while helping fight hunger.

For the past ten years, Indiana State has provided land for expert and novice gardeners to plant garden 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.

Cost: We ask every gardener to donate a portion of their produce to the food pantry of their choice.
