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!

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.
