The South Florida Permaculture Resource Center is an organization that networks with several farms for the mission of teaching about different types of permaculture projects and providing food for the local community in need.
We work with several churches, Buddhist temples, community groups, and local governments to create a network of community permaculture garden sites, where they are needed to provide freely available foods in local communities. We also run our own farms and offer classes, tours, and sell at farmers' markets in order to finance these charity garden projects.
Our other major program is advising relief workers in third-world countries, teaching people how they can grow high-quality foods in sustainable ways. Nutrition in these areas is poor, and the conventional relief programs are pushing chemical fertilizers and GMOs as the answer to the food-growing problems in these areas. We take a different approach, we use permaculture and regenerative agriculture practices to set up sustainable long-term systems to create an abundance of food in these impoverished areas. With few or no inputs, and no GMOs we can feed the world.
