Whether your diet is plant based or not, you can always enhance your life and health with fresh produce – grown and sold right here in South Florida.
This webinar introduces you to the history of farming in South Florida with historian Jeff Blakely, and to Urban Oasis Project and Heritage Market, two organizations on a shared mission of growing and supporting local agriculture while making fresh, farm-to-table food accessible and available to all. Your taste buds and body will thank you as you acquire, eat, and savor organic delights, grown thoughtfully and responsibly with love in the 305.
