Growing Places Indy is a non-profit organization with a mission is to cultivate the culture of urban agriculture and healthy lifestyles, empowering individuals and communities to Grow well, Eat well, Live well and Be well.
When we have access to food that is grown well; when we embrace a culture of eating well; when we are empowered within our community to live well; then we greatly enhance our capacity to be well.
Our vision is a full-circle vision for healthier communities, a sustainable future for urban and farm land ecology, a burgeoning local food economy, and a vibrant and diverse food culture in Indianapolis - all supported by and a strong local food and farm network.
We believe that individual experience and personal relationships are vital to the pursuit of our mission and vision. We seek to cultivate networks of connection by engaging individuals in opportunities for first-hand experiences in urban agriculture, in relationships with local farmers and local food, in experiential learning, and in practices for living well - such as yoga, meditation and urban bicycling. These are simple yet profound ways to empower a culture of wellness in Indianapolis.
