~ creating a sustainable local food and agriculture economy
Local food and agriculture is becoming one of the most important issues of our times. Florida West Coast Resource Conservation & Development Council is a nonprofit in the southwest Florida area working with both consumers and farmers.
Supporting Local Food & Farmers
The programs of the Florida West Coast RC&D Council focus on sustainable economic and community development, natural resource use and conservation, and sustainable agriculture. The FWCRCD serves Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, and Sarasota Counties on the central southwest coast of Florida.
We work on a diverse selection of programs that focus on current issues, ranging from reclaimed water usage to organic food production. Our projects include Geraldson Community Farm, Gamble Creek Farm, Sunday Market at Geraldson Community Farm, Florida Farmlink.org and the Manatee Agricultural Reuse System MARS.
Whether you are a consumer or grower, we want to help connect you with resources within the local food system. Please take some time to explore our website and feel free to contact us.
