Creating sustainable solutions for regional food production and distribution in Tampa Bay Area.

Our Mission
The Local Food Project grows food, community with resources, training and education. We facilitate creation of food gardens, micro farms, and food forest-style community orchards using sustainable practices like organic growing, aquaculture, and regenerative agriculture. We collaborate with nonprofits, community organizations, neighborhoods, health and education institutions, and businesses to develop projects that serve the Tampa Bay Region.  Our vision for the future is a sustainable multi-faceted food-centered complex for education and entertainment.
