Groundbreaking Project for Urban Farm in Indy

Joe W. is building a Hugelkultur at his farm on the near Eastside of Indy. The man has a dream to transform his property into an Urban Farm.

This is one of his initial steps towards achieving that dream!

TimeBank Indy is partnering with Joe to engage neighbors along the way to co-create this awesome space for the community. Through our TimeBank, Joe will be able to give “Time Credits” for the time spent on various projects. And the circle of giving continues…

If you’re free on Saturday Sept 5th and would like to help with this groundbreaking project (pun intended), please register using the following:
