7-23-2019 Yelp Down on the Urban Farm Event

Early Tuesday evening we went with our friends Mark and Annette to a Yelp event at the Growing Places Indy urban farm
located in White River State Park in downtown Indianapolis.

This is a working urban farm that provides produce to local restaurants and individuals.

However, as the sign says, you can walk around the gardens and sample a little.

This bed has lettuces like rainbow chard.

Another bed had two types of basil plants.

The Growing Places Indy booth.

Kat from Growing Places Indy explained what they do, then led us in a short guided meditation.

The couple (one vegetarian, one omnivore) who started Duos Kitchen, which sources produce
from the Growing Places Indy gardens.

We sampled a delicious carrot soup made from carrots and other things from these local gardens.

Phil, one of the farmers, talking about these Anise Hyssop plants, which have a yummy
black licorice or root beer flavor.

After the event we all went to MacNiven's Restaurant to try their Savor Indy menu specials.
Eric enjoyed our appetizer of Scotch Eggs.

Cara had a nice Vegetarian Taco Salad.

Eric had a hearty Steak Pie.

We split a nice, locally made toffee ice cream for dessert.
