Visit "The Green Spot" at the Jacksonville Farmers Market
This is NOT a preparedness meeting, but a great way to obtain (purchase) edibles plants and medicinal herbs that YOU can grow in your yard as food. Come see what "The Green Spot" has for sale. This is a great way to learn about local FL herbs and Fl hardy plants. Preparedness is best learned hands on, so start trying to grow your own herbs and food now. It is better to learn from gardening mistakes now, rather tha She has indoor orchid plants (these are great for improving indoor air quality). https://www.facebook.com/thegreenspotatthejaxfarmersmarket/photos?ref=page_internal The Farmers Market is open to walk-in and drive in traffic from 08:30 am-05:00 pm Monday thru Sunday (7 days a week). You can visit any time, but just thought I'd post as a reminder.

Jacksonville Farmers Market - The Green Spot

1810 West Beaver Street · Jacksonville, FL

What we're about

Hurricanes, economic uncertainty, pandemic, nuclear proliferation. The possibility of any or all of these hang over our heads every day. But are any of us prepared to protect our families if something drastic should occur?

Are you going to have all of the essentials, or are you going to join the mob of desperate last minute shoppers?

When you do that last minute shopping, is your money going to have buying power?

Be sure to look into our huge FILE section listed under "more" in the main menu. It is loaded with free information for you to download and share with others.

Meet with others to form a public alliance plan to benefit people prepared to self sustain independently for many months after an economic, natural, or man made disaster.

Let's work together to provide our own safety net for ourselves and our families. We want to foster community as we learn about and promote healthy, sustainable, self-sufficient lifestyles as well as environmental stewardship.

Please look at the categories on our discussion board regularly; we hope you'll come to the group for advice, and we hope even more that you'll offer advice to those who are looking for assistance! We look forward to providing an interactive learning community for you online as well as in person.
