Benefitting Fleet Farming & Frong Song Organics

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.

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.
