Let’s Grow with Growing Places Indy
Urban agriculture is going places – and growing places. A nonprofit organization, aptly named Growing Places Indy, brings food to Indianapolis with urban gardens and helpful classes on skills to grow your own food.
Founded in 2010, the organization hopes to empower city dwellers to “grow well, eat well, live well and be well.” It’s composed of a hardworking team, including farmers, apprentices and volunteers, who grow 60 varieties of fruits, vegetables and herbs on two acres in Indianapolis. Visitors can interact with the food and learn where it comes from – not something they can experience at the supermarket. The program also allows visitors to pick their own produce or sign up for a “community supported agriculture” program.
