Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Legacy Projects > Master Gardener’s Community Garden Master Gardener’s Community Garden

Garden 1

This spring, the Greene County Master Gardener’s planted a community garden at the Greene County Fairgrounds. Throughout the summer, harvested crops were donated to local food pantries throughout Greene County supplying fresh produce for those in need. Five hundred pounds of produce was donated in 2016. This project will continue next year. In fact, it will grow, adding more gardens throughout the county.

Q&A with Legacy Project Coordinator Sadie Davis

What do you consider the key accomplishment of your Legacy Project?

  • There were many accomplishments that were created through the development of the community garden, but several that stand out are the educational opportunities that the Greene County Master Gardeners organized and the amount of vegetables products there were donated to local food banks.

Describe a highlight or most memorable moment related to your Legacy Project.

  • The Greene County Master Gardeners hosted a nine-week vegetable gardening course with a local youth organization in our county. These young members had the change to work in the garden and even to make their own salsa at the end of the course.

How/where are you preserving information and artifacts related to your Legacy Project?

  • Most of our information is shared and recorded in the Master Gardener's monthly meeting minutes. We also publicized the progress of the garden through our social media sites through pictures and news releases.
