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-foot-by-4-foot 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.
