The Mobile Garden Center is a community green space on wheels for food production, education, creativity, and neighborhood engagement. It is a part of House Life Project (HLP), which is a community of artists and local residents who use abandoned houses to create art inspired by the neighborhood. We are currently located in the Saint Clair Place neighborhood on the Near Eastside of Indianapolis. Because of the partnership with the City’s land bank, there’s always the chance that we will have to move. (Hence, the Mobile Garden Center).
goals & vision
Areas of focus: building healthy communities, beautification of the neighborhood, nutrition education, access to fresh & healthy food, and improvements to mental and physical health.
Neighbors young and old learn how to grow food from start to finish. Weobile Garden Center, and the activities associated with it, take place outside, which helps keep us engaged outdoors.
provides space and context to talk about culture and history through the lens of food, as well as opportunities to connect and work with people from various walks of life.
