Welcome to our first ever Thankful Thursday, where we feature our partners who put the “community” in community garden! Frankly, our garden would not exist without the support of so many individuals, businesses, and organizations over the years.
From people power (including volunteers, meeting participants, and gardeners) to in-kind donations, discounts on services and supplies, donations of heavy machinery (along with people to use said machinery without crashing), and every single dollar donated, we celebrate every bit of support we have received since dreaming up this garden in 2015.
We launch Thankful Thursdays by introducing you over the next several weeks to the founding sponsors of our first ever Garden Tour, taking place Sun., August 20 from 2-5pm! Today, we start with our presenting sponsor, the Indiana State Fairgrounds and Event Center.
The northern edge of the Indiana State Fairgrounds is actually viewable from the garden, and we couldn’t be happier to share our neighborhood with the fine folks there. As presenting sponsors, the Fairgrounds will open their doors to tour participants, allowing us an insider look at the Purdue Extension-Marion County’s Demonstration Garden and Greenhouse.
All tour participants will gain free admission following our tour to enjoy the final evening of the much-loved Indiana State Fair! Did someone say corn dogs, deep fried pickles, and handcut fries? You know where to find us.
