In our pursuit of greater food accessibility we invest into a few different projects. All stemming from our vision for a more robust and accessible food landscape.
Our first garden is a quarter acre property on W South St between Parramore Ave and Amway Center. We intensively grow vegetables in an urban style production model. Shortening the distance from grower to eater and providing a location for people to get involved and participate with their food system. The long term vision is to replicate this style into neighborhoods across Orlando in order to localize production and education.
The students at the Jackson Center set up, run, and maintain a garden together. They maintain their garden every day they’re at the center. The goal of this program is to teach gardening and life skills to the students.
We feel that by teaching valuable information and building growing skills in our city, more people will grow food for themselves and for others. All of our workshops are open to the public.
