Suzanne is the veg gardener and has created a self-watering container she calls a Growbox. This design greatly reduces problems of growing veggies in difficult areas such as those lacking water or good soil, and its portable. Great for urban or apartment use. Growing veggies on Florida's sandbar is simply difficult since it does not hold much organic matter. Since using the Growbox she has had awesome results growing vegetables she has never had luck with growing in the ground. She sells Growboxes, a book on cd Growbox: Guide to Making Self-Watering Containers and hosts workshops on how to build them yourself. Worm Composting provides some of the best nutrients for the garden. At the Worm Composter Workshop, she teaches how to make your own worm composter, how to care for worms, we will harvest a pound worms, create bedding material, and how to use the worm tea and compost that will be created by the worms. You will go home with a completed worm composter with bedding material and a pound of worms!

Heirloom seeds are insurance for future food. Non-GMO, non-hybrid types are sold at the Funky Town Farm Stand on the property.

We love to talk about living sustainably in Florida, what you are doing, sharing, trading, worm composting, community, wild fermentation, wine making, mead making, eggs, tie dye, bees, local sources for food, markets, growing your own food, permaculture, living green. The number of backyards that have converted to producing food on the sandbar has happily and enthusiastically expanded. We can show you too! See our website for more details

I went to this farm & bought 3 chicks 4-6 weeks old. The farm was filthy. The chicks were in a small cage, 2 feet by 18 inches or so located on dirt. There were about 30 or so chicks in that one cage.... [more]

Most of the animals are kept in very small cages with water that appears to not have been changed in weeks. The conditions are poor and their farm is full of unorganized trash They buy their eggs from some hatchery in Texas which proves you don't really know where your chickens are coming from.... [more]
