I love this website! Everyone has great and useful information to share with others! You get informed of upcoming events. They share pictures of helping kids in the community with their 4-H projects.

Spends so much of their own time and money helping its community of homesteaders it's amazing. They really do look out for their membership. Very unselfish, tremendously giving with no expectation of reciprocity. Have seen them drive hundreds of miles to pick up animals and deliver them to Youth FFA participants. Read a great newspaper article about a neighborhood woman that needed a hand up clearing her yard, Florida Urban Agriculture was there with a dozen members to lend a hand. Great group. A true asset to the community.

Florida Urban Agriculture Inc. has been quite helpful to me while learning to raise my chickens. They are supportive and knowledgeable about so many plants, animals, gardening, and much more. This group helps others in need and also teaches classes to help people to learn how to make things such as soap, canning, crafts, etc. It is an AWESOME group!!!

I have watched this group grow to over 12,000 members in under two years. Great group of people who provide input, ideas, humor and confidence for others involved in homesteading. The information exchange is second to none. Had a duck with a eye problem, posted it on the groups FB page and within TWO minutes I had multiple answers leading to the successful solution to my problem. Thanks Florida Urban Agriculture........

Great forum for bringing together like minded people. I find the advise and information invaluable because it's from first hand experience. Everyone I've met has been kind, down to earth and generous with their time.

Give a man a fish, he eats for a day but teach a man to fish he eats for a lifetime. This group is the best example for that.

I have to give this group 5 stars and if I could I would give it more! People come together here for the good of others in so many ways! Being able to help others when in need, to help children be able to participate in FFA, classes are taught to benefit anyone that wants to learn to be self reliant from growing gardens to raising animals, friendships are made and the list goes on and on! Anytime there is a need or question this group rallies together to help! I'm so proud to be a part of something so rewarding and thankful for the people that make up FUH! We are hoping to grow, and to become financially able to be more and more! It's the best place to hang out, come on over, you will not regret it and we can always use knowledge, more hands and more ideas!

When I think of a non-profit, I think of this group: People selflessly helping each other develop in their farming paths but also making the group develop with wisdom and fun. A non-profit group is not just about the group, it is about the people that make the group a whole. Florida Urban Agriculture Inc. and it's supporters will be the group I will support and am proud to be a part of.
