Urban agriculture grows up in Tampa Bay
Tampa Bay is becoming a leader in the national trend toward organic agriculture, which uses no chemical fertilizers or pesticides on food that is typically sold or consumed locally. Meet some of the people who are sharing their knowledge about food sustainability that benefits our region’s ecosystem.
Special thanks to Dany (left), Nat (center), Kenny (right) They installed a donated (from our great next door neighbors) a sliding glass door, procured off a boat, on to our greenhouse. GREAT JOB, THANKS!
PS- SPECIAL Thanks to Nat for his service to Country, State and the SLP. You will be in our thoughts during your deployment, Positive vibes coming your way. See you in August.

Nature's Food Patch
Give thanks so many are growing to end hunger
When Will Carey was a chef in Brooklyn, he was concerned about all the food that went to waste. So ever since he moved to Florida in 1994, he’s been busy working to end that practice and ensure no person goes hungry.
He started as director of food services for Salvation Army, and today is the executive director and manager of operations for Tampa Bay Harvest, a group that has recovered and distributed 70 million pounds of food in Pinellas and Hillsborough counties since 1989. Last year, alone that number was 5 million pounds.
He has 200 regular grocery stores, restaurants, growers and the like donating food and 400 agencies that distribute it. If you have food left over from a wedding or party, call on him and he’ll see that your food gets to those who need it at once.
I was happy to know that Carey worked with my late friend Polly Shewfelt and her husband, Gene, with whom I often went gleaning for several years until we all got too old. It was a very rewarding and pleasant way to be useful.
St Pete Free Clinic and the Florida Orchestra
Again this year Tampa Bay Harvest and the St Pete Free Clinic partnered with the Florida Orchestra for a beautiful night of Music, reflection and collection at Vinoy Park.
Almost 2,500 pounds of food was collected and will be back out into the community that can use it most.
THANK YOU to all the volunteers (of all ages) and the donors that made it possible.
