Welcome to SUAC
Sustainable Urban Agriculture Coalition (SUAC) is a group of volunteers who facilitate the creation of gardens to increase accessibility to locally grown, healthy produce. Our members provide mentoring, information, materials, seedlings and other resources to groups and individuals who wish to get involved with urban agriculture. Whether you want to create a community garden, school garden, food forest, special project, urban farm, CSA, farmer's market, Co-op or garden in your own yard, we will be happy to help!
We meet the first Monday of each month at 7 PM at Enoch Davis Recreation Center. Meetings are free and everyone is welcome. These Community Gatherings include guest speakers, videos, presentations, group discussions, garden and farm tours, and more. Check for our notices, get on our email list or contact us for further information!

Summer Vegetables for the Tampa Bay Region
What food can we grow during Florida's hot summers?
Many people are mystified about what to grow for food in the summer here in west-central Florida. The high heat and humidity are stressful to the better known annual vegetables. Not knowing many folks give up and just wait for the fall planting season. As a result several potentially productive garden months and many garden spaces go unused during this season.
But there are many edible plants that will grow and provide food for those intrepid gardeners who don't fear the summer season. Our program will show and describe food plants that can be grown in the hot conditions. Many will be plants will be new to you and difficult to find locally but we will have many of them available at the meeting for a donation so that you can try them out at home immediately. Are you curious as to what they might be?
Come and join us for an entertaining and very informative evening. It has been presented in past years and is judged by past attendance far and away our most popular program ever. The information just might allow you to “kick up your gardening a notch.”
