Farmer Frog: We grow children in the gardens and cultivate communities.
Farmer Frog is a Branch of the 501c3 nonprofit organization, Foundation for Sustainable Community. We are promoting and supporting local economies, communities and ecosystems through hands-on STEM focused curriculum resulting in more engaged students and relaxed teachers, as well as good eating habits leading to improved health. We accomplish these goals by practicing intense urban and small scale agriculture utilizing permaculture and season extender technologies producing 365 days a year. We connect stable better-off households with low income members in the communities we work in.
We repurpose underutilized sites, materials and resources, restore urban ecosystems, revive underserved neighborhoods and turn these into environmentally sound food producing farms and gardens. We feed people who otherwise would not have the means, ability or awareness to eat fresh healthy food. We involve them and enable them in bettering their own lives. We provide curriculum to teachers and schools and train the interested public. We bridge the social gap between different groups by literally bringing them to the table to eat together.
If you are interested in joining us and volunteering, we thank you. Please check our page for more details:
