Indy City Market (Upstairs North Mezzanine) The City Market at 222 East Market Street Indianapolis

Would you like to turn your backyard into a food production area for you and your family? Want to grow organic fruits and vegetables that are free from pesticides and herbicides?Believe it or not, it’s possible to harvest 550 lbs of fruit and veggies on 640 square feet of land. The secret is Permaculture. On my 0.2 acre property, I have 6 productive trees, 24 productive bushes, 60 medicinal plants, edible landcaping, 24 laying hens and 2 ponds that allow me to harvest fruits, veggies, berries, fish and eggs all from our backyard. Participants are welcome to come to our farm afterwards.

  1. I would like to join the “build your own backyard grocery.” Am I permitted to bring my sons (ages 7 and 8)?

    • Sure. Our 2 year old helps us in the garden and chickens. We won’t go into any parts about butchering. I love getting kids into growing, and even having their own space in the garden. Growing what they want. Their responsibility. One of our 11 year olds has a container garden where she grows her own lettuce for salads. She also collects the eggs each day, and feed the chickens as needed.

  2. Excellent! i got the last seat (I’m assuming the plus 2 won’t be an issue…). We’re fledgling homesteaders and are looking forward to learning more. The boys take care of the chickens, but I’m not convinced they’re happy about it 🙂
