Soul Food Project is a nonprofit urban farm in Indianapolis located in the Northeast Corridor. Our mission is to foster wellness in our community by increasing access to local food, offering hands on education, and providing a creative space for artists.
Established in 2017, we have been working towards building a just and equitable food system in the Northeast corridor through our urban farms and our summer youth employment program. Our area of service is primarily the Martindale-Brightwood and Meadows neighborhoods, but our boundaries are Emerson to the East, 46th to the North, Dr. Andrew J Brown to the West, and I-70 to the East.
Our farming operation is located on several residential lots in an urban setting. These lots are owned or rented by our farmer, Danielle Guerin. The combined growing space is 7100 square feet, with over 5000 square feet on one lot. There is also an additional 700 square feet available for expansion. Last year we grew mainly vegetables, such as squash, tomatoes, peppers, lettuce, carrots, melons, cucumbers, kale, eggplant, onions, cabbage, and green beans.
