Meeting: The October meeting will be a visit to the South Circle Farm which is an 1.5 acre urban farm located two miles south of the Indianapolis city center on South Meridian St. Amy Matthews founded the farm in 2011. The farm uses only organic practices. They use small-scale intensive gardening techniques such as broad fork tilling. They use row covers and clay sprays to avoid the pests. And in the spring and fall, they use non-heated low tunnels to extend their growing season. Bring a chair just in case.
Pitch-in lunch: Bring a favorite dish filled with food (“home-made” and/or “organic” appreciated) to share and your plate, fork, and drink.
Directions: From I-65 south of central Indianapolis take the Raymond St. Exit 109 West. Go west on East Raymond St. 1.1 miles to South Meridian St. Turn right (north) on Meridian St and go 0.1 miles to your destination on the left (west) side of the street.
