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.
The demonstration garden is located 350 feet east of Discovery Hall where the Purdue Extension‐Marion County office is located. This is in the northwest corner of the Indiana State Fairgrounds, 1202 E. 38th St., Indianapolis, IN 46205. There is no charge to view the garden or for parking for garden entrance (except during State Fair). For directions or more information on the garden, call 317‐275‐9290, or e‐mail: MayerSL@purdue.edu.
