The Edible Peace Patch Project is a 501(c)(3) not for profit organization whose mission is to eliminate poverty as a factor in educational success and diet-related health issues by cultivating healthy minds and bodies.  To accomplish this mission we provide education through hands-on learning, in our organic garden beds. These sustainable gardens are built through community co-creation and utilization of local resources! 

We currently operate six schoolyard gardens in south St Petersburg, Florida including Campbell Park Elementary, Fairmount Park Elementary, Lakewood Elementary, Maximo Elementary, Melrose Elementary, Sanderlin IB World School, and we have aided in the maintenance of the John Hopkins Middle School garden.
Eckerd Alum Victoria Simone created an amazing documentary about social issues in St. Petersburg and and focuses on The Edible Peace Patch Project. Thank you for highlighting important issues and our organization!
