Sellersburg - Duke Energy Community Garden
If I had a flower for every time I thought of you, I could walk in my garden forever. -Alfred Lord Tennyson
Ivy Tech Sellersburg announces the creation of a new campus landmark that will honor those who served our students, that will enhance our commitment to the environment, and will offer our community a place of reflection and relaxation.
The Duke Energy Community Garden will transform our campus park into a unique green space. With a winding pathway through the garden, it will offer a beautiful and contemplative walk for visitors. The brick pathway will feature customized bricks, each etched as a tribute to someone dear to you or in honor of someone special in your life.
Just as importantly, a Memorial Monarch Butterfly Way Station will also be planted and cared for in support of Monarch butterfly migration which is threatened due to habitat loss across North America. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have launched initiatives to save Monarch butterflies and habitats. Across the nation, individuals, communities, schools, colleges, businesses, zoos and parks have also joined the cause. Thanks to a generous gift from Duke Energy Foundation, this landmark will become a reality for our campus.
