Council Team Pitches in at Gary Urban Farm

Last week, NWI Food Council board members and volunteers joined dozens of other volunteers in constructing hoop houses and garden beds at Gary's Faith Farms, next to Progressive Community Church.

The project was organized by the church along with Faith CDC. They brought in Will Allen, the grandfather of urban farming, and his organization, Growing Power, to lead the work. The hoop houses will allow year-round growing for their Faith Farms. Keep an eye on this area, friends. Amazing ideas are growing here!
