Learn the ins and outs of gardening! Growing your own food using sustainable methods lowers your carbon footprint significantly, and you get to eat healthy, organic produce.
What we're all about.
We want to prove that agriculture can be sustainable. We use only organic seeds and fertilizers and maintain our food forest which contains a number of native plants that all aid in the preservation of local biodiversity.
How you can help!
Students, faculty and staff can get involved by coming to our bi-weekly workdays!
When: Mondays and Thursdays from 4:30 PM to 6:30 PM
Where: Behind the FSU Flying High Circus (269 Chieftan Way, Tallahassee, FL 32306)
Why: Agriculture is one of the most necessary industries, but can be one of the most unsustainable industries with the use of harmful pesticides, fertilizers, GMO’s and the elimination of biodiversity through habitat destruction.
What to Expect: Seek out the Garden Manager, Louie Castillo. He will set you up with seeds, gardening materials and show you the ropes. Bring a reusable water bottle to stay hydrated!
Rent a garden bed.
