Growing food, building gardens, and educating to develop local food systems.
In Palm Beach County we have 200,000 people that go hungry each year. With the cost of food rising it is becoming hard to keep up feeding those who go without food on a daily basis. The best way to stretch food donations is to grow the food for the hungry. By sponsoring our farm you can help us get very important staples to our partners that directly feed those who need food in our community.
Our local food system begins in our backyards, everybody needs to do their part and #GrowSomething. Most of the population in Palm Beach County is in a very urban area and real estate to grow food is hard to come by. The Farmer Jay Wood Shop is able to fabricate many variations of gardens to accommodate any special growing condition and after building hundreds of gardens the technique has been mastered for longterm results.
Farmer Jay's Jr Sprouts was developed and designed, starting with one class in 2010 to teach a group of Brownies and Girl Scouts in Boca Raton. Now seven years later there are 25 classes offered and over 4,500 kids have come through the program. With your help we can teach all the children in our community the lost art of growing food.
