On Tuesday, the Universal Orlando Grow Orlando Inc. horticultural team provided starter plants to help the underserved Orlando communities create micro-farms to tackle food shortages.

Grow Orlando is an Orlando-based organization that provides life and financial skills to disadvantaged youth by growing, landscaping, and harvesting their own seeds.

A big thank you to @UniversalORL and his horticultural team for providing these starter plants for #groworlandoinc. As you can see, our fearless leader Frank is overjoyed. Special thanks to Amy Winslow for providing these great photos. #urbanfarming

One of the charity’s primary goals is to eradicate food deserts by teaching communities how to create urban agriculture to provide high quality food for all.
To provide accessible groceries to low-income communities, they partnered with the Orlando United Methodist Church of St. Luke to create “Grow it Forward,” a network of micro-farms.
