Jeffersonville Optimist Club
61 Louise St, Jeffersonville, IN
In 2004, Sunnyside Master Gardeners helped develop an educational garden around the grounds of the Jeffersonville Optimist Club. The gardens were designed by Master Gardener Melody Miller.
Groups that regularly meet there—the Boy Scout troops, the Men’s evening and the Women’s morning Optimist clubs—help with the planting and maintenance. The gardens at the Jeffersonville Optimist Club provide an opportunity to teach about garden design, laying out gardens, amending soil, learning about specific plants, and planting and maintaining a garden.
