We encourage everyone in South Florida to re-think the lawn and plant vegetable gardens, fruit trees, butterfly gardens, and plants which attract pollinators, birds, and wildlife. Our vision is a city with yard after yard of lush growth producing food for all. Each yard is an urban oasis, creating the larger urban oasis, citywide!
We work toward eradicating urban food deserts: where you can't find a fresh tomato, but can easily buy liquor, cigarettes, and packaged, processed industrial food low in nutrients and high in non-food ingredients. Let's replace an urban food desert with an urban food oasis!
We plant raised bed vegetable gardens and edible landscaping. Everyone can grow at least some of their own food, and the benefits are immeasurable! Body, mind, soul, the planet, everyone wins.
We share gardening advice, experience, anecdotes, knowledge, trials and errors.
We celebrate uber-local food, that which is measured in food-meters, not food-miles. How far did your salad travel from soil to table? Mine was about 3 meters, a few steps out the back door.
We have fun with work parties, field trips, and potluck suppers starring our garden goodies.
We learn to make kitchen concoctions from what we grow, like homemade garden sauerkraut, pickles, chutneys, preserves, ice cream, and more!
We teach workshops and classes about different gardening methods, composting, learning to work with Nature, not against her.
Let's grow together!!
