Who We Are

The Edible Plant Project (EPP) is a 100% volunteer-based, 501c3 nonprofit organization working to promote edible landscaping and local food abundance in North Central Florida. The goal of the EPP is to create positive alternatives to the unsustainable food system in this country.

We are volunteers just like you. We need more leadership & dedicated volunteers, and as well as a sustained number of infrequent helpers.

What We Do

We have a small edibles only nursery and seed back. We host free workshops & cultivate various fruits and edibles. These are free to volunteers & a small adoption fee (usually $4) for others.

We also have a seed bank. All are well adapted plants with high nutrition.

We distribute on our nursery days & 2nd Wednesday GVL Farmer's Market, as well as special events.

We accept community service for schools.
