Indy Urban Acres
Indy Urban Acres, a project of the Indianapolis Parks Foundation, is a collection of four organic farms used to empower and educate people by providing equitable access to free, high quality produce. Since 2011, Indy Urban Acres has grown into a multi-disciplinary farm that works to inspire transformational change within Indy’s food system by providing food justness for low-income families, educating thousands of youth through tours and farm-to-plate workshops, providing community engagement to thousands of volunteers and groups, and teaching teens valuable job skills.
Indy Urban Acres welcomes volunteers and service groups to help with improvements, weeding, planting and harvesting. Our hardworking volunteers have dedicated their time and talent to maintain and grow Indy Urban Acres.
Throughout the summer, Indy Urban Acres hosts Teenworks and other groups for tours and educational programming at the farm. Each summer, thousands of youth and young adults experienced how food is grown and to how to grow their own.
Minimum of 15 participants for each group tour.
All tours are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting at 10:00am or 1:00pm.
Tours must be scheduled in advance.
May 22nd is the first open tour date.
Suggested donation of $3 per person.
To learn more about tours and schedule your volunteer group, email David O’Rourke or call at 317-860-3251.
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.
