Organic Growers Collective
Where: Camilla Room, Harry P. Leu Gardens, 1920 Forest Ave, Orlando, FL 32803
When: 3rd Wednesday of each month; 7- 8.45 p.m.
Introduced in September of 2007, the Organic Growers Collective brings together Central Florida’s organic growers and consumers with the hopes that the collective synergy created by this type of alliance will create public awareness of organic issues, facilitate development of organic community projects, and provide an outlet for local organic growers to share and discuss organic farming best-practices.
The collective is open to all those interested in growing in a more sustainable fashion. Be a part of the effort to increase organic crops in your backyard, in community gardens, in schools, and on your kitchen windowsill. Learn about other growers practicing sustainable agriculture in our region, and stay posted on the latest organic developments in Central Florida.
Bring samples of your food for our tasting table, plants and gardening supplies to donate for the raffle table, and events to post on our community bulletin board. Each month we have an after party at Ethos Vegan Kitchen from 9-10 p.m. for further discussion.
