Linda Proffitt

Founder and Executive Director of Global Peace Initiatives (GPI), Linda Proffitt is a social worker by profession.  GPI’s core program is the Peace Garden, which addresses people's basic needs. Peace Gardens grow food to feed the hungry. As the chief Peace Gardener, Linda wants to see Indianapolis become the Peace Garden capitol of the state and the state become the Peace Garden capitol of the country. She believes our deep agrarian history and culture can be revitalized to show the country how to create a sustainable means to provide fresh food to feed the hungry. Teach Them To Fisheries is a new job development program of Global Peace Initiatives that can put a prototype loop cycle poly-culture growing environment in your home today. Poly-culture growing environments include aquaculture and hydroponics food growth. For more information about GPI check out their website at www.globalpeaceinitiatives.net .
