LOOKING TO PRODUCE: Emery’s cleanup part of community garden effort

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

“We’ll be doing more as we raise funds,” he said. 

Siding repair, a new door and handicap-accessible ramps are among the additions planned for the exterior of the Emery’s building. 

New windows will also be added, and they were donated by Fred Aemmer of Caldwell Sash Co. 

Inside, Teigland said a counter and other improvements will be installed  to make it conducive for its intended use. 

“It will be something that we can use for a classroom setting,” he said. 

Greg Sekula, southern regional office director for Indiana Landmarks, said the garden and education center will support each other once the project is finished. 

“It’s really a collaborative effort here, and we just want this to be a community restoration for New Albany,” he said. 

If you are interested in volunteering or donating to the project, please contact FAN via email at FAN@floydactionnetwork.org.
