Sweetwater Organic Community Farm

Our farm is an oasis located in the urban Tampa landscape. Our 265 member CSA has small fields and tropical orchards tucked in between the wooded areas of our land. Sweetwater creek runs through our farm with a small walk bridge spanning the waterway that is home to many fish, sometimes otters and occasionally a manatee. It is a wonderful place to meet a friend for lunch, have a group meeting, help on the farm or just play in the mud. Not to mention that we grow great food from September through May. Internships and apprenticeships available. We feature a hands-on field trip program for school-aged children and a wonderful Sunday Market/Music Series open to the public. For more info visit our website at www.sweetwater-organic.org
