Default South Florida Farm

Hey! so im moving to south florida. I just got 5 acres made available to me to start a sustainable agriculture project. I am setting it up as a demonstration site, where we can help people create permaculture systems in low income communities for very little (or no) cost. the non profit that owns the land and hired me works with many religious organizations and municipalities to help with healthcare and wellness, and this is just another new way that we are working on keeping people healthy. Proving good, healthy food for free where it is needed most.

5 acres in west palm beach? Well, if it were east palm beach i would say bah hum bug...west palm beach acreage (if far from the coastline) is probably (possibly) doable... try getting 5 acres here in ft lauderdale....it's not even possible unless you are Donald Trump, and bananas aren't anywhere close to what he has in mind for putting on 5 acres of property here

It's about 8 miles in from the coast. The guy who I'm doing this with has owned it for a long time and is just now wanting to do something with it for his non-profit.
