Currently, Grimm and Spicer are also involved in another project developed off the Basic Roots skeleton.
Their idea is called Greenstreets, and will it be a part of the Willard Park Quality of Life Initiative, a project supported by the Willard Park of Holy Cross-Westminister Civic Alliance. With the help of Global Peace Initiatives, five stakeholders within Willard Park will receive hands on training for year round produce production at Peaceful Grounds. With this training, each will return to the Willard Park neighborhood to take leadership over one or two lots to develop an urban garden.
With additional support from the Indy Food Fund, Spicer and Grimm plan to replicate the Basic Roots Community Foods' business model in efforts to reach a larger portion of the community with the addition of a larger and more efficient vehicle. This development will increase the visual utility of Willard Park and will continue to enhance efforts to develop sustainability practices throughout the community.
And it all begins with healthy, nutritious, locally-grown food.
