Community Development

Community Development seeks to empower individuals and groups by providing them with the skills needed to effect change in our community. The Sustainable FloridiansSM Program, Water School, and Citizens Academy educate citizens and decision-makers about issues affecting our community.

We work with small farmers and producers through direct marketing and community events such as the Brevard County Farmers Market, the Brevard County Fair, Run-thru-the-Ranch, Farm-to-Table dinners, etc.

We also work in coalition with civic and economic partners to strengthen local food webs and educate community members about Brevard’s agricultural heritage.
