Fleet Farming Programs

Local Action, Global Change

Changing the way cities think about food is more than planting seeds. It is converting lawns into farms, installing impactful food gardens, and educating our community to become part of the movement for a more sustainable tomorrow.

Fleet Farmlettes

Convert your lawn into a farmlette to help the community access fresh, local food. A farmlette is a lawn converted into a productive farm plot that our team fully maintains via bicycles. We grow food for local vendors and SNAP Certified Farmer’s Markets while sharecropping with our Farmlette Hosts. Submit an inquiry to donate your lawn to add to a local branch or to start the “buzz” in your area. Our farmlettes must be at least 500 square-feet,  receive eight hours of sunlight, have access to a water source, and be at least 2 years without chemical sprays (approved by a soil test).

Fleet Installs

Fleet Installs serve those outside of our biking range so that you can grow and harvest food for your personal family and friends. We install easy to maintain, long lasting, raised garden beds that you can have fitted with automatic drip irrigation and hardy plant varieties. Fleet Installs also offer installations of food forests. A food forest is a diverse planting of edible plants that mimic ecosystems and patterns found in nature. Choose from a wide variety of fruit trees (such as banana, mango, papaya, avocado), perennial vegetables, herbs, and edible shrubs. Please contact us below to bring edible landscaping to your home or business.

Fleet Education

Learn how to Grow Food, Not Lawns from the Fleet Farming team. Fleet Education offers educational services for your office, school, group, or organization. We offer hour-long engaging PowerPoint presentations and Q + A sessions that bring Fleet Farming to you to discuss the environmental reasons for why we Fleet Farm and how you can engage in agriculture too. Looking to engage your group hands-on? We also offer private Swarm Rides, which are team building educational urban agriculture experiences in Orlando, Florida. This option includes a walk or bike down “Fleet Street,” thirty minutes of education on how and why we farm, and one hour of urban farming.
