Promote development of a sustainable local food economy for Tallahassee, Leon County, and the Red Hills region, the jobs, health, and other benefits that will come with it.
Sustainable Tallahassee strongly supports local foods. Shopping for and eating local foods enables us to enjoy fresher and better tasting foods, financially supports local farmers and farmers’ markets, and in most cases is more nutritious.
Our community is fortunate to have a strong emerging local food movement, but it hasn’t yet begun to draw the thousands of citizens that is our local potential.
We have established the Community Garden Network of the Capital Region to support and connect people who have a passion for growing food and who garden in community gardens throughout our region.
These articles describe some of the accomplishments of our Community Garden Network volunteers:

2019.10.22 Healthy Roots - Community Gardens Provide Fresh Produce, Exercise, and Friendly Bonds.pdf
Through our combined efforts, we can help to shape food policy, identify financial resources, and provide technical support to all who share our desire to grow good food, whether it be for you and your family or to share with others--or both!
The network is for you and about you! Our focus is wherever you see a need. We host semi-regular gatherings to share and learn, host an occasional potluck at one of our member's homes, and share information and resources within our community.
Check the calendar or our Facebook page for our next meeting or for more information.
By joining our efforts you can make a big impact in this area!
