We’re more than just a farm!
Through our variety of community programs, we provide educational opportunities for kids and adults to learn about organic farming, caring for herb and vegetable gardens, healthy living and environmentally-friendly, sustainable life choices.
Our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Program was the first in Florida and keeps growing every year. CSA “Members” purchase a “share” of the vegetables we grow ahead of the season and then pick up their veggies on a weekly or bi-weekly schedule depending on the type of membership they purchased.
Hundreds of school children have visited the farm through our hands on Field Trip Program where kids become “Farmers for a Day” and learn where food comes from! Our Workshop Series is open to the entire community. Attendees enjoy expert advice on organic gardening, plants, food choices, healthy/sustainable living, and many other topics!
Our Sunday Farmer’s Market is open to the public every Sunday at the farm from 12 – 4 pm. A relaxing yoga class begins the day from 11-12, followed by live music as part of Sweetwater’s Live Music Series, an organic Produce Stand, and plenty of local Vendors selling everything from green smoothies to soap!
So plan a field trip with your kid’s school, spend an afternoon in the greenhouse volunteering, attend a workshop to learn about back yard composting, or join as a CSA Member and enjoy the freshest organic veggies you can buy!
However you like to get involved, you’re sure to learn and enjoy your time at Sweetwater Organic Community Farm.
