Vernon Township Community Garden

Thank you to all our Vernon Township Gardeners and Volunteers. We’ve had an amazing first two years at our starter garden at 700 W. Broadway. We were able to donate a nearly 1000 lbs of produce in 2020 and 2021 to our local food pantries in Vernon Township.

In 2022 Vernon Township is working with Mt Vernon Schools to continue our donor garden program. We look forward to another successful season of gardening with their students.

And this year we are also working on developing the new community garden site behind 602 Vitality in conjunction with our new Advisory Committee. Reynolds Construction is building the berm and the foundation for the entrance road. Ball State University landscaping students are developing garden concept plans for community input.
