Natural Awakenings Indianapolis

Kelly Funk Recovery Fund

Everyone who knows Kelly Funk knows she is a woman of uncommon energy and drive, approaching everything she undertakes with passion and enthusiasm. Along with her husband, John Ferree, Kelly owns and operates Seldom Seen Farm, one of the most successful small-scale vegetable growing operations in Central Indiana. Kelly and John are currently vendors at several local farmers markets.

On the afternoon of Thursday, July 8, Kelly was tragically struck by lightning while working on her farm. As of today, she remains in critical condition at Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis. While there have been small and hopeful signs of improvement, her journey of recovery will be long and difficult. She is surrounded by loving and supportive family members, who welcome your thoughts and prayers.

Kelly’s extended “farm family” has launched a number of efforts to ease the family’s financial burden during this difficult time. Many of the vendors will be accepting donations at local markets this week and some are also donating a portion of their weekly sales.

A fund in Kelly’s name, the Kelly Funk Recovery Fund, is set-up at Huntington Bank for anyone wishing to make a direct donation.
