Upcoming Event: Info session with Kissimmee Green Place!






Kissimmee Green Place farmers are extremely passionate in growing quality foods, fresh for Homegrown members!

“We are growing natural and organic because of the lack of availability and affordability for vine-ripened, fresh picked and locally grown produce. At the present time, even if you purchase natural and organic vegetables at your local supermarkets, more than likely it is being shipped from California or Mexico. No matter where it originates, the cost of packing, cooling, shipping and distributing this produce from such a distance is why the prices are so high. So, if your produce is being shipped so far, more than likely your “fresh” vegetables are at least one week old.”

Come to the coop store for an educational session with Kissimme’s Green Place! Kissimmee’s green place grows their fruits and vegetables in a very unique way. Learn about this unique was of growing on Friday, December 7th from 5pm-7pm!
