How do you envision Florida's future?

 
Do you want to make a difference
for the future of our state?
 
 
Join Florida Organic Growers TODAY and support organic agriculture
and healthy and just food systems!
 
Florida Organic Growers (FOG) is busy at work providing communities in Florida with programs and resources that promote and support organic and sustainable agriculture, as well as healthy living.
 
 Recently this has included ensuring the voices of small farmers  are heard as new federal food safety regulations are being  developed, installing GIFT gardens for individuals in need,  providing access for SNAP participants at farmers markets and  launching FOG's new and improved website including sections  for growers and consumers, the Farmer Forum, the FOG Blog  and more! 
 
 We can't do this work without the support of our members!
 
 Together we can create a sustainable, local, just, organic food  and farm system that’s good for people and the planet. Membership includes updates on the latest organic news through The Organic Beet, online access to organic resources throughout the state for both farmers and consumers and discounts at FOG events and with various partners, including Southern Exposure Seed Exchange.  
  
JOIN TODAY and you will receive your invitation to Harvest Hoedown, our annual
member appreciation event!
 
The event will take place on Saturday, October 26, 2013 from       5 to 9pm at Prairie Creek Lodge in Gainesville. Harvest Hoedown will feature local organic food from Sweetwater Branch Inn, live music by Weeds of Eden and Fiona Das, dancing, a silent auction and more!
