SPROUT Garden Education is our program to teach women and their families the benefits of gardening and growing your own food. CWUW offers a comprehensive garden program that includes both classroom training and hands on education at a garden site. CWUW has been heavily engaged in addressing food access and insecurity in Indianapolis.
CWUW is a member of the Indy Food Council and is partner with the Lawrence Community Garden and Indiana University School of Public Health on a research project focusing on community engagement to improve food access.

Remembering Miss Mary’s Wellness Garden
Miss Mary’s Wellness Garden (MMWG) was started in 2010-2016 in the Riverside Neighborhood creating a unique green space for both community gardening and wellness activities.
MMWG provided opportunities for the neighbors of Riverside to learn more about gardening and issues focusing on food security as a social justice concern. In seeking funding, our project furthered our mission of empowering women and families in building knowledge of food insecurity issues and what actions can be made to address those concerns.
Farm City: An Indy Food Story
CWUW participates in a documentary about food systems and health in Indianapolis
FarmCity examines the complicated relationship between the health of a city and its food system. Through stories of an urban farmer, a single mother, a grocery store owner, health experts and community organizers, the documentary looks at what needs to happen to build a healthier city.
