An IndyGo bus adventure to Fruit Loop Acres

This particular visit to the Southeast Community Services Center, led by Tiffany Boyd and Sarah McAfee, started off with a presentation by me on carbon pollution and climate change. The students, listened attentively as I delivered consensus science on where we're at regarding our unraveling climate, especially in Arctic and the west coast of the United States.

After lunch, we took IndyGo to Fruit Loop Acres, a perma-cultured fruit farm just east of the downtown. It's an amazing place, really, like no other place in Indianapolis, as you'll see from the photos.

There, we enjoyed the geese and ducks and fruit and bees of the habitat, learning more sustainable agriculture and climate change. All in all, it was an amazing day!

Fruit Loop Acres is replete with strange and wondrous objects. 


Kay, one of the proprietors of Fruit Loop Acres, talks about the 30 varieties of fruit they grow. 
Bees are an essential component of a fruit farm! 

I love this next sequence of photos as Kay encourages the youth to pet the bees. Watch what happens.







Victory!
