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!
