Down to Earth Farm

We want to build a kitchen in our community education center. We already grow beautiful organic food -- help us teach others to cook well!

Funding Goal

Seeking

$15,000

The infrastructure, remodeling and fees that go with constructing a commercial kitchen. We are also looking for people to lead additional cooking classes and seminars using healthy food.

About Project

We are Brian and Kristin Lapinski and we run Down to Earth Farm, a sustainable farm on the Westside of Jax. As part of our education center, we want to create a community kitchen. This would allow us to lead fresh veggie cooking classes as well as host others who wish to make healthy value added products to sell to the community.

Project Showcase Proposal

Display boards with photographs from our farm as well as a design of our education center with commercial kitchen.

Project Questions

What city is your project based out of?

Jacksonville, Fl

What sets your Project apart from what is currently available?

Active sustainable agriculture, particularly on the commercial scale, is very rare in Jacksonville and the surrounding community. Our vision of a multifaceted education center includes a community kitchen where folks can both learn first hand about how their food grows, and then how to prepare it in empowering cooking classes taught by community members (or the farmers themselves).

Why are you and your team the best people on the planet to handle this project?

We have a passion for organic agriculture, healthy living and a healthy earth. We also have a beautiful space that is very accessible to the people of Jacksonville, being only 10 miles from downtown
