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.  To accomplish this mission we are building a model farm to school food system that will provide educational support and training and offer food literacy while delivery fresh locally grown food to school cafeterias.

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.
Our urban farm is on the horizon.  Julius Keblinskas has donated his architectural skills and knowledge for us to display our plans to the public.

When considering your year-end contributions, we hope you will think of us. The Edible Peace Patch Project installs gardens in the lowest performing schools in our community, and works with educators to develop lesson plans around work in the garden. This is education that students can really get excited about. The students grow fresh tomatoes, squash, eggplants, and more. We grow young minds!
