The community garden project aims to provide an opportunity for members of the Orlando community to work with and develop a relationship with members of the Farmworker Association of Florida in Fellsmere. We do so by creating spaces for open dialogue, story sharing, and an opportunity to exchange skills and knowledge!
Please bring comfortable shoes, clothes you can get dirty, water bottle, insect repellent, and a GREAT attitude!!!
The Fellsmere Community will be feeding us two meals so please bring the recommended donation of $10. There will be vegetarian and vegan options!
Additionally, they are looking for a weed eater so if you are able to donate one that would be awesome!!
