About Us

Central Avenue Gardens, formerly Fall Creek Gardens, is the urban growers resource center for anyone interested in growing food in the city. From a pot of lettuce in a windowsill to a small flock of chickens in the backyard, we believe that homegrown food not only tastes best, but also leads to healthier people, land, and communities.

We are located on Central Avenue next to the Unleavened Bread Cafe, 3003 Central Avenue, Indianapolis (view map).

Visit Central Avenue Gardens, explore our website, or attend one of our workshops and classes. What topics related to gardening, food preservation, and urban sustainability would you like to learn about? If you don’t have a backyard or patio for gardening at home, there are plots available in our community garden for neighborhood residents, and volunteer spots open for tending our teaching garden.

Share ideas, ask questions, and learn more by getting in touch at info@centralavenuegardens.org.

See more of our day-to-day activity, access useful resources, and participate in the ongoing conversation.


To be a leader in the cultivation of healthy food, people, and communities


We empower home and urban food growers by practicing and teaching organic and sustainable methods, promoting community gardens, and providing access to resources.


Central Avenue Gardens would not be possible without the ongoing support of Mapleton Fall Creek CDC, and the visionary support of the Efroymson Family Fund (a CIFC Fund).
