By using pest control and pollination, and maximizing your garden space, you can grow a fruitful garden.

This technique offers various ways to grow a healthy garden, including providing habitat for beneficial insects and increasing crop productivity.

This program is presented by Fleet Farming and is hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.

About the Presenter: 

Fleet Farming is a non-profit urban agriculture program of IDEAS For Us that transforms the average American lawn into a bio-verse, productive micro farms and edible gardens. Our mission is to empower all generations to grow food to increase local food accessibility. Our vision is to create localized food systems that bring communities together towards a healthier, more connected world in harmony with people and planet. We accomplish this by converting underutilized lawn space into productive localized edible gardens or micro farms. Our program works to provide edible landscaping to schools, community centers and affordable housing units. We also serve businesses and individuals through our community farming initiative and Edible Landscapes garden installation service. Together, we are changing the cycle of food.
