CULTIVATING COMMUNITY WITH EDIBLE PEACE PATCH

​This event will celebrate the St. Petersburg-based nonprofit’s mission of cultivating healthy minds and bodies through hands-on educational gardens in Title I schools in low-income areas of Pinellas County.

 The dinner will honor Watson Haynes, CEO of the Pinellas County Urban League, for his support of The Edible Peace Patch Project. A St. Petersburg native, Mr. Haynes is deeply involved in the community, including the St. Petersburg Chamber of Commerce, Pinellas Education Foundation P4PS Committee, and AMI Kids. He also served as the Charter President of the Midtown Rotary Club and President of the Concerned Organization for Quality Education for Black Students.

Attendees will hear from students whose lives have been affected by the program. A live band will be present and there will be opportunities to sponsor an Educational Garden!

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.
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.

SUMMER MOBILE WELLNESS PROJECT: This summer, the Edible Peace Patch Project will offer its program in some of the city's recreation centers. The program was first launched a year ago in partnership with the Tampa Bay Rays and the City of St. Petersburg. This year, we hope to add new community partners to the mix as we attempt to broaden our reach to Lealman, Clearwater and Hillsborough. The goal: To offer lessons on health and wellness to children in an effort to fight the spread of diet-related diseases and to educate them about food, where it comes from and how it affects their bodies. Join us by supporting this worthwhile project.
