#FLOWERSTHATFEED

We donate 100% of our produce to food pantries and directly to select low-income families, but we sell flowers to support our mission! The flowers are grown, harvested, and arranged into beautiful bouquets then sent off to a Kroger near you for purchase. You can recognize our flowers by the sticker with the Indy Urban Acres logo and #flowersthatfeed.
