Florida Organic Growers Moving Monday Campaign
Florida Organic Growers (FOG) has been working with the Southern Sustainable Agriculture Working Group and Rural Advancement Foundation International with the support of the U.S. Department of Agriculture AMS local food promotion program to help support the formation of agricultural cooperatives in North Central Florida.
Their work, including the successful Moving Monday campaign, a weekly email sent Mondays throughout the month of December to spotlight how they are changing the food landscape throughout Florida, has impacted more than 60 farmers, consumers and the community.
A farmer-owned, farmer-controlled organization would aid in the distribution, sales and marketing, and by working together, local communities would receive greater access to sustainably raised local goods, as well as increasing the income and resources of Florida farmers.
