Central Florida, once an agricultural cornucopia, now imports most of its food. If the trucks stop delivering, there is only a 30 day supply of food on hand in warehouses and grocery stores for the 5 million people living within 100 miles of Orlando. The creation and successful operation of sustainable farms in and around urban areas requires focusing on intensive crop production practices and networking with the local food culture so that fruits and vegetables can be marketed as close to retail pricing as possible. Opportunities and challenges in the implementation of sustainable urban farms and value added marketing is the focus of this workshop.
