We held our A Planet for the Future dialogue on Earth Day with the FL Food Policy Council Chair, Erica Hall, and Youth Farm Collaboration Manager, Carla Bristol discussing the environmental impact on communities and what we can do moving forward. Find the video here.
Our Earth Celebration was an amazing day thanks to our partnerships with Chart 411, 360 Eats, Suncoast Sierra Club, Forward Pinellas, St. Pete Bike Co-Op, Gadgets for Good, NOMAD Art Bus, and our drummers Malik & Ed Burrows.
Thank you to everyone who showed up. Alan Brock (Florida Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services), Ken Welch, Pastor Pulley, Council Member Brandi Gabbard, Erica Hall (Florida Food Policy Council), Rob Greenfield, Pinellas Education Foundation, and Harold Bryant Jr (Foundation for a Healthy St. Petersburg). We appreciate your support!
We picked our first harvest that day and had it available for attendees to take home on a donation-based model. We still have more veggies we are harvesting weekly! We have peppers, okra, eggplants, tomatoes, and more available. Come out to the farm Mondays to Friday from 4pm - 6pm to pick up.
