Learn about local, organic community farming, and discover how to eat healthfully with the seasons here in Southwest Florida. Expand your culinary repertoire with a down-to-earth, plant-based, food prep demo featuring fresh, local organic vegetables. This program is presented by Eva Worden, Ph.D., of Worden Farm, an 85-acre certified organic family farm in Southwest Florida.
The farm was co-founded by Eva and husband Chris Worden, Ph.D. Since 2003, the Wordens have been growing fresh, local, organic produce for the local Southwest Florida community and distributing it through farmers markets and through a community supported agriculture (CSA) farm membership program.
Thousands of people have been taught about organic food and agriculture by the Wordens, in educational videos, television shows, workshops, farm tours, university courses, conferences, consulting and an intensive farm apprenticeship program. They have promoted agricultural development and community greening projects within the United States and internationally.
The Wordens are recipients of the Florida Innovative Farmer Award, and have been recognized as Organic Farmer Experts by the Organic Trade Association and the United States Department of Agriculture.
