Fleet Farming:
Fleet Farming is a non-profit urban agriculture program whose mission is to empower all generations to grow food to increase local food accessibility. Fleet Farming has a vision to create localized food systems, which bring communities together for a healthier, more connected world. Fleet Farming accomplishes this by converting underutilized lawn space into productive localized edible gardens or micro farms, ultimately changing the cycle of food.


Frog Song Organics:
Free Mulch Incorporated is the For Purpose organization housed within the Frog Song Organics Farm. Its mission is to grow farmers by creating a farm incubator model which provides a structured path for aspiring and beginning farmers to learn hands-on production skills and business skills to enable them to create viable business plans and thereby launch their own farm businesses.
