Lunch & Learn Series
Growing Places Indy hosts a summer Lunch & Learn Series at The Platform at City Market. Each week's conversation features a panel of local food community leaders and experts, with time for audience engagement as well. The series is free and open to anyone interested in attending, and it is not necessary to reserve a place in advance. Lunch is not provided, though there are many options available from the City Market and summer farmers market.

We accept EBT for Farm Stand purchases, and offer up to a $5 weekly match on EBT purchases.
