Indy Urban Farming Forum

So, you think 'cause you live in a city you can't be a farmer? Sustain Indy is out to prove you wrong! There's an intro session on urban gardening and farming at 7 p.m. 21 June in the Garfield Park Arts Center, 2505 Conservatory Drive, Indianapolis.

Included on the agenda: Safe Soils Discussion for Brownfield Lots / Urban Infill Lots; urban ecology, Peace Gardens and a Q&A with Office of Sustainability Director, Kären Haley and City Brownfields Program Manager, Chris Harrell.

Who should attend? Anyone interested in learning more about urban farming, gardening and farmers markets in Indianapolis. The event is organized by the City of Indianapolis’ Office of Sustainablity and the Brownfields program. For more information, send an email.
