Ecotone Farm donated a variety of 60 heads of hydroponic lettuce to the Treasure Coast Food Bank charity event held at Schacht Groves on Saturday, March 24th in Vero Beach. The event was held to raise awareness for children, seniors, and families struggling with hunger in the Treasure Coast area. This was a farm to table experience that included locally grown food, a lovely lake side view, traditional old-country blue grass music, and a farm tour of the grove.
Ecotone Farm is also donating to a future event in cooperation with the TCFB on Saturday, April 14th at Kai-Kai Farm in Indiantown. A farm tour will take place at 10:00 am and the farm to table brunch will take place at 11:30 am. We hope to see you there.
This is a form of a growing industry known as agritourism with farm to table dining experiences, farm tours, and other on-site farm events. Keep an eye out in the future for similar events to be held at Ecotone Farm in Fellsmere, Florida.
