Communities Creating Change: Our Voice, Our Choice is a campaign to encourage and sustain urban agriculture in the mid-north/northwest area of Indianapolis
KI Urban Agri-Culture Learning Lab: The house we are currently rehabbing will serve as a public space for individuals and groups to learn about and engage in aquaponics, urban gardening and urban farming. Empowering individuals and groups with the knowledge, skills and experience to grow their own food and strengthen/expand their relationships by working together to address a common problem and builds community.
This is the foundation for a long-term sustainable solutions to community challenges. In addition, studies have shown that by increasing social capital through social networking leads to long-term sustainability in communities.
Decentralized KI Community Gardens: Three vacant lots that KI is leasing through the City of Indianapolis will be accessible to the residents who are participating in the programs at the KI Agri-Culture Learning Lab to put what they have learned into real life practical applications. We will also be collaborating with local artists to design and integrate art into the gardens on these lots for the community to enjoy as well.
