Have you noticed something new sprouting up in our Ys? Those vertical growing systems are part of SEEDifferently, an initiative of the YMCA of Florida’s First Coast and Atlantic Beach Urban Farms. We are cultivating passion about Urban Agriculture to create jobs,educate youth, improve public health and empower communities. Together, we hope to inspire communities to grow their own food and see the untapped potential in all of the unused spaces.
Did you know…
*That means thousands of Jacksonville residents don’t live within easy access of a supermarket — or any other place where fresh food and produce is consistently accessible.
We know that if we can somehow increase access to healthy foods then we will in turn increase consumption and positively affect the health of our community. That’s where grow towers come in. These state-of-the-art vertical aeroponic growing systems allow you to grow up to 28 plants in less time than it takes in soil.
