Indianola Informal Garden

April 28, 2018

Indianola Informal K-8's existing garden is in need of a spring revitalization! USGBC Ohio and the teachers/parents in charge of the garden at Indianola Informal are planning an exciting day on April 28th from 9am -1pm. Along with bringing in new mulch and preparing for the spring, Rain Brothers will be installing a 500 gallon rain cistern for reuse. This will help reduce the storm water impact the building has on the fragile Scioto River ecosystem and also serve to feed the garden throughout the year. In addition, Oakland Nursery has generously donated large shade trees for the playground area! Future goals also include a rain garden and outdoor shade structure for class gatherings. USGBC Ohio in the Central Region aims to remain a partner and make all of this a reality!

The garden's purpose is to "create a living learning lab for the students of Indianola K-8. This will allow students to grow food, create habitat, and learn about the natural world surrounding them."
