Cultivating connections: Fields Market Garden aims to naturally build ties with community

For the last several years, Fields Market Garden has produced flowers and fresh greens in the heart of Carmel, and this season appears to be another year of growth for the nonprofit.

Even as the garden west of the Monon Greenway on Smoky Row Road in Carmel went dormant for the winter, much work was happening behind the scenes to prepare and expand it for another season. Kate Sexton, urban farmer at Fields Market Garden and community supporter at North End, has been busy studying, planning and sowing for this year’s harvest.
