Purdue Extension-Marion County Demonstration Garden
A new demonstration garden was created on the Indiana State Fairgrounds in 2012 by Purdue Extension-Marion County staff and Master Gardener volunteers. The demonstration garden features annual flowers and vegetables.
“The garden demonstrates how to grow food and ornamental plants,” says Steve Mayer, Extension Educator‐Horticulture, for Purdue Extension‐Marion County. “Gardeners can see and learn about plants adapted to Indiana and how to care for them.” Gardeners can see award‐winning flowers and vegetables as well as vegetable gardening techniques such as raised beds.
In 2013 the Purdue Extension-Marion County Demonstration Garden became an official All-America Selections (AAS) Flower and Vegetable Display Garden. It is the only AAS Display Garden in Indianapolis and one of only a half-dozen in Indiana. An AAS Display Garden provides the public an opportunity to view the newest AAS winners in an attractive well-maintained setting.
