Indy Urban Acres Farm
Indy Urban Acres is an 8-acre organic farm that donates 100% of the fresh fruits and vegetables harvested to local food pantries through a partnership with Gleaners Food Bank. Since 2011, Indy Urban Acres has grown into a multi-disciplinary farm that provides food equality for low-income families, educates thousands of youth through tours and farm-to-plate workshops, provides community engagement to hundreds of volunteers and groups, teaches teens valuable job skills and helps improve Indy's food system.
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.
Indy Urban Acres welcomes volunteers and service groups to help with improvements, weeding, planting and harvesting. Nearly 1,000 hardworking volunteers have dedicated their time and talent to maintain and grow Indy Urban Acres. Everyone is welcome the first Saturday of each month from 9 am - Noon for open volunteering. Click here to learn more about what to expect when volunteering or to schedule your group!
