Urban farm planned for Gary

Buy Us A Coffee

GARY – The site of the former John Stewart Memorial Settlement House at 15th Avenue and Massachusetts Street will become an urban farm for Gary.

The property is owned by the Christ United Methodist Church. Development at the property will use recycled steel, brick and limestone from the original house and small wind turbines to provide power.

Organic crops will be produced at the site, which has been planned and developed by Beth Shrader, a landscape architect working on her master’s degree at Ball State University.
