Where: On the Fairgrounds located by the silo area on the northwest side of the exhibition hall.
When: This bed was installed in 2015 and dedicated to Bill Rice who was our retiring ANR from Purdue University. A plaque is in the garden to commemorate his years of service.
Why: The purpose is to give the public ideas of ways they can create a garden that involves all of our senses in its design. This bed can have changing plantings that provide new and exciting plant displays. This area is grounded with a sandstone bench and large dogwood tree along with a magnolia and beautiful stone urn that changes with the seasons.
Activities: Regular watering and weeding is needed in this small bed. With the changing of seasons we need to plant new arrangements in the urn. Volunteers are needed to take a week or two to tend this heavily viewed bed.
