Fresh Fruits and Veggies on Their Way
Check this out: the City of Winter Garden is creating a 12-acre sustainable working and teaching farm off Avalon Road that will eventually produce more than a million pounds of fresh fruits and vegetables each year. The best part? All the produce will stay right here in our community, so we all have better access to affordable, healthy food.
Tucker Farm will have a one-acre, state-of-the-art greenhouse, barn, commercial and outdoor kitchens, a commissary and a retail store right on site. It will also be home to the Institute of Health and Nutrition managed, in part, by the UCF College of Medicine. The farm will be open to the public and will host school groups, gardening clubs, 4H groups, Boy & Girl Scouts — anyone with an interest in agriculture.
The farm will be managed by the City of Winter Garden and is being funded by a $1.7 million grant from the West Orange Healthcare District.
