Root 36 2016


The History of Root 36:

Prior to 2016, the Avon Community Garden had been at ground level. Watering and

tending to the garden required a lot of effort, mostly because of that lovely, but

challenging, Indiana clay soil. 

In February 2016, the community decided to build ten 8'x4' raised beds to facilitate

gardening. In early spring, the Root 36 Committee secured sponsorship for lumber,

soil, and mulch. On March 21st, volunteers spread mulch, constructed beds, and

added soil with invaluable assistance from the grounds-keeping staff at Hendricks

Regional Health.

The soil in the beds is a mix of top soil, peat moss, and soil enhancer to encourage

strong, productive vegetables and flowers. 

Half the beds are reserved for the Town of Avon residents and half for HRH YMCA

members.

This effort would not have been possible without the planning committee and our

sponsors. The Root 36 Committee would like to thank GreenCycle McCarty,

Hendricks Regional Health, the HRH YMCA, and the Town of Avon for their

partnership and sponsorship. We are grateful for your support!
