What We Do At Felege Hiywot Center Has A Lasting Impact

Our main Indianapolis youth program has always and will always be urban farming. Through our farm, we’re teaching all youth of Indianapolis how seeds grow into plants, how to care for the garden, how to be environmentally responsible, and how to prepare, eat and share the produce. But, these lessons extend well beyond the farm and shape the way the kids embrace their roles in the community. The Indinapolis youth programs at Felege Hiywot are designed to keep students involved in the community long after they graduate high school. They come back as mentors, tutors, and farm leaders because they want to continue the mission of FHC.
