Nonprofit farms get creative

as drought lingers

July 19, 2012 | 0 comments

A worsening drought that's parched most of Indiana is forcing not-for-profit farms and community gardens to get creative as they try to save their crops.

Workers have created impromptu irrigation systems as excessive heat and the longest dry spell in more than a century in Indianapolis have wilted leaves and cut yields.

Some of the crops raised go to food rescue organizations like Second Helpings.

Others are sold to pay for outreach programs.

Farm foreman Joseph Monroe says the Harvestland Farm west of Anderson tapped a pond on its property for irrigation but drained it by the end of June.

The farm run by mental health group Aspire Indiana has had to replant.

Second Helpings spokesman Ben Shine says a week of good rain could improve the situation quickly.
