Indy Urban Acres Farm

Indy Urban Acres is an eight-acre organic farm located at 7700 E. 21st Street that provides fresh fruits and vegtables to local food pantries. Since 2011, Indy Urban Acres has flourished into a thriving farm which includes an orchard, raised beds, a 3,000 square foot greenhouse, two bee hives and three hens. Through the support of Indiana University Health, The Glick Fund, Indianapolis Power & Light and CLIF Bar Family Foundation, Indy Urban Acres has provided more than 30,000 pounds of fresh produce to Hoosiers through Gleaners Food Bank.

Throughout the summer, Indy Urban Acres hosts Indy Parks day camps and groups for tours and educational programming at the farm. In 2012, more than 1,000 youth and young adults experienced how food is grown and to how to grow their own.

Indy Urban Acres welcomes volunteers and service groups to help with improvements, weeding, planting and harvesting. More than 500 hardworking volunteers have dedicated their time and talent to maintain and grow Indy Urban Acres.
