What an innovative and inspiring use of otherwise wasted space! 250K servings of fresh vegetables and fruit are produced and given away annually. Given away-- no one is charged for the food they grow ♡

I was lucky enough to attend an event last night with some generous friends at this farm. I live on Eastside and had no idea this place even existed. Such a fa...bulous project that helps poor families get an opportunity for a healthier future. I am a senior on a very limited income and have had to go to some food pantries for the first time in my life in recent years. The folks that attended this financial support seeking affair were rewarded with a wonderful dinner, a prize raffle, music and just a lot of fun in exchange for their donations to further the success of this worthwhile project. I personally know the stress of trying to buy decent healthy produce on a very tight budget. Sometimes the dollars are just not there after the bills to shop for food, esp. the high quality organic crops this farm is contributing to the food pantries of our city.God Bless this venture with much success in the future to continue to help the underprivileged of Indianapolis.

OMG our flowers were BEAUTIFUL! I was unsure what to expect because it all depends on their growing season, but the flowers the put together were a hug statemen...t. I worked with Lauren, and she was great with communication and being accommodating to my needs. I would HIGHLY recommend them for weddings or any event that requires flowers! See More

World Refugee Day is one of our favorite days each year and today was no exception! Thank you Center for Interfaith Cooperation, Burmese American Community Institute Inc, Immigrant and Refugee Service Corps, and AmeriCorps for your work at the IUA today! Serve Indiana, thank you for your support!

I can't say how proud I am of Sister Tracey. She worked for a few years with us on hunger related issues. And it's an absolute to honor to know her and fight for justice with her.
