Fresh for Florida Kids Food Garden

Located at the Holland Building in Tallahassee, the Fresh for Florida Kids Food Garden was designed with the new MyPlate in mind. The purpose of the garden is to have a place for school children to come and learn more about growing fresh produce and how important eating fruits and vegetables is. The garden is open year around to visit.
