Bringing Food Forests to NE Florida has a mission to bring food forest gardens to publicly accessible locations wherever there is a need, and educate community members, children and their families through the process of food forest garden creation and installation. These gardens provide free access to healthy, organic produce using sustainable permaculture techniques.
In early 2014, one of the founders of Cultivating Kids Home School Group of Northeast Florida saw an opportunity to marry hands on learning with community service when a chance to compete for a small grant came about. As members of Permaculture Jax, a group responsible for several private food forest initiatives in and around Jacksonville, fellow homeschooling moms Jolinda Kohl and Tina Harden co-founded Bringing Food Forests to Northeast Florida.
Imagine walking through Riverside, downtown or your own neighborhood; interspersed with the decorative landscaping there are fruit and berry trees bearing gifts for the taking. It sounds dreamy, but we can make it a reality, right here in our own backyard!
