Fleet Farming is a bike-pedaled urban agriculture program which converts underutilized lawn space into micro-farms called “farmlettes”. A percentage of the crop goes back to the owner, but the remainder of the produce is distributed to local restaurants and farmers markets in order to stimulate the local economy by keeping the revenue in the neighborhood and creating job opportunities. Healing Alternatives is joining in the effort to fund-raise for this non-profit group, as well as participate "hands-on" in the building of this garden.
The Remington Inn is home to some of Central Florida’s most needy families. This is often a transition housing option right before homelessness. By investing in this project, the children and families there will have an option for healthy food and the experience of growing it themselves.
