What is Farmraiser?
Farmraiser is a 21+ fundraiser in support of Indy Urban Acres, a project of The Parks Alliance of Indianapolis. Now, don’t let the word “fundraiser” scare you away, because this event is 100% party. Farmraiser falls on the last Saturday in September. You will be sipping the best local drinks, munching on tasty local eats, listening to live music, boot scootin’ with friends, and enjoying a one-of-a-kind experience under the sun and stars at our main farm.
This year we are celebrating 10 years of Indy Urban Acres! Since 2011 Indy Urban Acres has donated roughly 300,000 lbs of produce. That means nearly 2 million servings and a retail value of about $1 million. That’s a lot of green!
During the pandemic, IUA grew a record-breaking amout of produce and staffed the food pantry to ensure that healthy produce and food was making its way to our most vulnerable neighbors.IUA has also hosted roughly 11,000 children on tours, nearly 12,000 volunteers, and employed 480 teens during the summer.
