The Community Garden Wants Your Straw Bales!

The CCS Plots to Plates Organic Community Garden is in need of straw bales to help line the paths at the garden.  If you used any straw bales in your fall decorating, please consider donating them to the garden!  This will keep the bales out of the landfill and be used for a good cause.

To donate straw, please go to Carmel Middle School (300 S Guilford Road, Carmel) and follow the drive along the tennis courts.  The garden is on the western part of the property by the woods.  Bales can be placed by the shed.

Interested in gardening?  Carmel Clay Schools and the CCS Green Team have created 98 plots that Carmel residents or CCS employees can rent for $10 per year.  For more information, go to
