Master Gardeners have been working at the Community Garden almost as long as there have been Master Gardeners in Elkhart County. The Community Garden is located at the Elkhart Airport. There are enough extra plots to allow a few choice others from the community to secure a space for growing their own vegetables. Produce has been donated to a food bank, usually Church Community Services. Since 2004, we have donated over 15,000 pounds of food.
The Community Garden has been a wonderful spot for Master Gardeners in the area to practice their gardening skills and to earn volunteer hours. During gardening season, most all Tuesday mornings at 9am will find willing members at work. The camaraderie and friendships formed made the work secondary. New and old gardeners are welcomed.
