Do you know about our Suncoast Gleaning Project?

It's Amazing!

During the 2017/18 Suncoast Gleaning Project season alone, over 280 volunteers have harvested and donated over 30,000 pounds of fresh, local, organic produce to go to the needy! Since its inception in 2010, the Suncoast Gleaning Project has donated over 270,000 pounds of fresh produce! Read more about the Suncoast Gleaning Project Here.

That's something we can all support!

The project was recently highlighted in Edible Sarasota - Read it here!

living in a community that is walkable, bikeable, and busable. One where your food is healthy, fresh from a local farm or straight from your own garden. Where people know and look after each other. Where there is a network of local businesses that can thrive in any economy. Where our energy comes from clean, renewable sources. Where people are united by a common purpose and nature is protected to be enjoyed by all.
This is the vision of Transition Sarasota. Together, we can work to make it a REALITY.



Growing a more sustainable, just, and prosperous local food system.
