History & Mission
Sustainability minor now available
Several years ago, the 11th and Chestnut city block consisted of vacant, dilapidated houses. S
eeing an opportunity to invest in the community, ISU bought this land and demolished these homes to build a community garden. The garden has thrived since 2008, thanks to the efforts of ISU’s
Center for Community Engagement
and Patti Weaver, Volunteer Garden Coordinator.
The garden has expanded every year since it was opened, and currently hosts 90 gardeners and offers 150 plots. Garden operations are 100% organic.
Garden plots are free, and anyone from the community may apply for one. The Community Garden offers free water access and tools and is staffed by several volunteers and a student garden
assistant who are available to answer questions. 10% of all garden produce is donated to local charities.
To apply for a plot, visit the
ISU Community Garden homepage
contact Patti Weaver
While the Community Garden and ICS operate separately, sharing a physical location brings us together, and we often collaborate on projects, grants, and events to build a more sustainable Wabash Valley. ICS has a plot in the garden that is being used for student research on permaculture.
