Haven Garden gets growing in Indy

Harvey, who was rescued from an abandoned warehouse, helps Sue Hobbs tie strings for pole beans.
Jun 24, 2013

Our partner and land donor is Cats Haven, Indy's oldest no kill cat shelter.  We are fortunate to have an all-feline security force.  They protect our plants from predators and "help" in many ways.  They like to be involved in all garden projects.  All cats at the shelter were rescued, and now they strive to pay it forward.  The cats and the human volunteers grow vegetables to donate to The Julian Center, a nearby shelter housing 110 victims of domestic violence.

Haven Garden has a small efficient team of volunteers. We use vertical gardening techniques to get LOTS of vegetables out of our small urban plot.  After a long, cold Spring, we are finishing up our planting phase.  Our Sow It Forward grant provided two portable greenhouses.  We start most of our plants from seed, so we can offer varieties not available at garden stores.  Thanks, KGI!

Can't wait to harvest the tomatoes, beans, chard, cucumbers, herbs and squash to come!
