Levee Loquacity


Thumbs up: Honoring green innovation

As quaint as the notion of a garden party may seem, a statewide

series of soirees

planned for Saturday, Aug. 18, will illustrate the myriad

ways in which Indiana's gardens are breeding grounds for innovations in

sustainable living. The celebrations are the brainchild of Sustainable Indiana 2016,

which aims to foster "measureable progress toward sustainability by Indiana's

Bicentennial year 2016." The various sites featured within

Marion County

include urban community gardens, a native species orchard, a

science education garden, yard gardens and flower gardens. Several other

parties are on tap statewide. Find locations at sustainableindiana2016.org under

the "garden parties" tab.
