Last garden sneak preview! Check out the lovely Purdue Extension-Marion County Demonstration Gardens, our final stop on the tour.
The demonstration garden was created on the Indiana State Fairgrounds in 2012 by Purdue Extension-Marion County staff and Master Gardener volunteers. It features annual flowers and vegetables.
In 2013 the Purdue Extension-Marion County Demonstration Garden became an official All-America Selections (AAS) Flower and Vegetable Display Garden. It is the only AAS Display Garden in Indianapolis and one of only a half-dozen in Indiana. An AAS Display Garden provides the public an opportunity to view the newest AAS winners in an attractive well-maintained setting.
“The garden demonstrates how to grow food and ornamental plants,” says Steve Mayer, Extension Educator-Horticulture, for Purdue Extension-Marion County. “Gardeners can see and learn about plants adapted to Indiana and how to care for them.” Gardeners can see award-winning AAS flowers & vegetables and vegetable gardening techniques like raised beds. It’s a place for gardeners to get ideas.
SPONSOR RECOGNITION: Check out these wonderful supporters of the garden and our community (and show them some love!).
Thank you, JUST POP IN!
Just Pop In! was established in 2003 and created by dynamic twin sisters, Mandy & Carly. Inspiration stemmed from evenings spent popping with their Grandfather. They develop playful and scrumptious recipes for the nostalgic snack and place them in hip, thoughtful and snappy packaging.
JPI believes the quality of their product is equally as important to the experience they offer their clients. They are dedicated to a culture of happiness, open-mindedness and co-existence. Their company philosophy has earned national, regional and local awards and the attention of clients like IndyCar, PGA, NCAA, Christian Dior | Nylon magazine, to name a few.
Mandy and Carly are passionate about supporting their local Indianapolis community. They are proud partners of various organizations that offer invaluable services to the community such as The Damien Center, Indiana AIDS Fund, Habitat for Humanity, The Julian Center and The Patachou Foundation.
Popcorn isn’t just popcorn to the girls; it’s a catalyst to sharing in an experience with the people they meet each day, whether a friend, family member or stranger on the street.
