Edible Peace Patch is a not-for-profit with the mission to eliminate poverty as a factor in educational success and diet-related health issues. They are building a model farm-to-school food system that will provide educational support and training while delivering fresh local food to school cafeterias. They currently operate six schoolyard gardens in south St. Petersburg. Balance Tampa Bay will spend the morning helping cultivate and tend the garden at one of these schools.
