Purpose & History

This garden is named in honor of Bill Rice, our Purdue Agricultural Extension Agent from 1996-2014, and was established in 2015.  A sensory garden appeals to the five senses.  Plantings in the garden were chosen for their outstanding color, smell, unusual foliage texture, and flowers.  Some plants can be lightly brushed with the hand to reveal their scent.  A windcatcher was added in 2016 to provide movement.
