IU Health Day of Service, as well as youth from Groundwork Indy's Green Team and Ground Corps assisted in painting these murals. Design came from working directly with you at Ignite Achievement Academy.

Much of this work started with our work on the Northwest Area Safe Routes to school. Students identified 70+ houses and other properties that were vacant along their route to school and felt these were scary places. We thought we could do something about that.

We've spent the early days of fall harvesting the first round of sheds to upcycled in to furniture. Our community partner Project Lia has been instrumental in collecting the sheds, as well as spearheading their conversion.

The proto-type conversions are exciting and we'll share photos in the months to come via our Facebook page. So stay tuned!

 

Two of the sheds remain on-site near the intersection of Udell and Rader Streets to support the community transformation work of Aspire House. 

Circle City Sweet Potato Festival

Due to rising numbers for the corona virus in our community, we have decided to cancel The Circle City Sweet Potato Festival Drive-Thru event.

 

Our goal was to celebrate with music and a free sweet potato giveaway in a drive thru type event.

 

With that said, what we offer are a few of the FAVORITE recipes from the past Sweet Potato Fests including:

  • The Odd Couple (sweet potato mac and cheese eggrolls by J and J Catering.

  • Sweet Potato Bars by Treats by Fee

  • Sweet Potato Butter by LaShawnda Crowe Storm
