Fairmont Elementary Children's Garden
1725 Abbie Dell Ave, New Albany, IN.


The children’s Garden at Fairmont Elementary is in the courtyard (behindthe school), and is designed with people and pollinators in mind.

We raise a wide variety of annual and perennial vegetables, flowers and herbs. Fairmont is an English as a Second Language (ESL) school, and has a diverse group of growing gardeners. Students help with planting, garden maintenance, and harvesting under MG guidance.

In the winter months we are typically only in the classroom with gardening, cooking classes, and other nature related topics. We also focus on nutrition, and making better food choices. The children of Let Us Learn (a local non-profit) use the garden as an outdoor classroom when weather permits. Classroom times are provided by the school each session. It is also used
for the after-school program, Growing Gardeners Club.

There are many volunteer opportunities in the classrooms and out in the garden. We work in the garden every Tuesday beginning at 8:00 am
