Our current food system is full of inefficiencies, many of which stem from fossil fuel use during food production and transportation. The typical American meal travels an average of 1,500 miles from farm to table. In the US, we expend ten calories of fossil fuel energy in the atmosphere. This is for every calorie of food we consume due to the transportation of the produce.
Meanwhile, lawns are one of the largest sources of U.S. pollution. There are 40-million acres of grass lawns in America. They absorb three million tons of chemical fertilizers and 30-thousand tons of pesticides each year while requiring 800 million gallons of gasoline for mowing. That’s why we transform these wasteful lawns into sustainable farm plots with produce sold to local vendors within a 5-mile radius.
By hosting Swarm Rides, free community events within the vicinity of the local farmlettes, we lead volunteers on bicycles to engage in farming within residential neighborhoods and learn how to farm their own lawns. In conjunction with Swarm Rides, we offer internships with our mother non-profit IDEAS For Us. This can be used as school credit towards college degrees.
Our programs and events provide important educational tools imperative for social change and national food security. Together, we can preserve the knowledge of how to feed oneself while providing healthy produce to local communities. Every neighborhood deserves the right to have healthy options in abundance right outside their front doors.
Urban agriculture stimulates the local economy by providing interest to businesses that are joining in the local food movement. Whether it’s local restaurants that are cycling in local food into their menus, or small businesses at farmers’ markets that are a part of bringing interest to communal shopping, our communities are catching on to the taste of organically grown food that is good for both ourselves and our environment.
With the average age of a U.S. farmer at 58 years old (USDA 2012 Census), Fleet Farming Orlando is training the next generation farmers through our Swarm Rides, free community events, and our internship program, ensuring a future of food producers.
