Sharrona Moore, a mother of 5, wife, grandmother of 3, barber stylist, and educator. I am also a full-time farmer, CEO and Garden Manager at Lawrence Community Gardens, Inc. Our 7.6-acre non-profit farm is located at 9240 East 46th Street, Indianapolis, Indiana 46236, in one of America’s largest food deserts. I partnered with Monarch Beverage to grow food for the pantries. I am Neighborhood Food Champion for the Far Eastside and have a certificate in Urban Agriculture from Purdue University. We donate 50% to 80% of the food we grow to area pantries and operate a climate controlled mobile farm stand that distributes the remainder of our fresh organic produce to nearby apartments and senior communities that have high populations of residents with low access to transportation We are advocates for food equality for our neighbors who have low income, so also accept SNAP to fit their needs.
