The Vernon Township Trustee's Office is facilitating a Community Garden located outside our office at 700 W. Broadway, Fortville.  The goal of the Community Garden is to allow residents of Vernon Township to cultivate their own gardens in assigned plots.  Plots will be 5 ft x 10 ft.  In addition, the Township is seeking volunteers to help maintain a Master Garden.  All produce harvested from the Master Garden will be delivered to our local food pantries for distribution to Vernon Township residents in need.


The Community Garden planting season will kick off April 1st (weather dependent) and closing down on November 30th with end of season clean up. 

How to get involved:

Fill out the interest form below and submit it directly through our website.  


We are requiring a $20 deposit that will be returned providing you abide by the policies of the community garden.
