Description

TURN Festival welcomes Kimbal Musk as the keynote speaker for Circle City’s celebration of urban sustainability on Saturday, September 30th at 1p.m.

Musk is the co-founder of The Kitchen, a growing family of businesses that pursues an America where everyone has access to real food. Musk was named a 2017 Social Entrepreneur by the World Economic Forum for his work to bring Real Food to Everyone. His restaurants, Hedge Row and Next Door will open in Indianapolis later this year and will source food directly from local farmers, stimulating the local farm economy to the tune of millions of dollars a year. His non-profit builds Learning Gardens in local Indianapolis schools and around the U.S. reaching hundreds of thousands of students every school day. His urban, indoor vertical farming accelerator, Square Roots, seeks to empower thousands of millennials to become real food farmers.

Working with Indianapolis schools and prominent donors such as the Simon Family Foundation, Musk’s non-profit aims to build 100 Learning Gardens in Indianapolis by 2019 to help students (especially in food desert neighborhoods) learn about nutrition and healthy eating.
