Sustainable Urban Food Production

Recently, the IFAS Extension of the University of Florida offered a free online class about urban farming and a few of our community garden members signed up for this wonderful opportunity. It is completely online due to the Covid-19 virus, and the presenters have done a fantastic job of presenting the information in a variety of visual formats. There are 6 sessions and session 3 begins tomorrow. Topics covered in the class include models of urban agriculture, obstacles and challenges, and how to do direct marketing as a small farmer. This information will help us in planning exciting activities and events for our Community Garden and Food Forest. If you see Satya, Judi, Anne or Jackie ask them about the workshop. They will be happy to share!
