Happy Earth Day everyone! For this very special day we knew we wanted to talk to a farmer in our community so who else would we turn to than Green Flamingo Organics based out of Oak Hill, Florida just 15 miles south of good ol' New Smyrna Beach. For those of you who live in the area you might know that Green Flamingo Organics has been selling their produce in our side lot at The Florida Local for the past month or so while we've been closed and we LOVE having them there. Green Flamingo farmer and founder, Liz, is such an amazing member of our tight knit community here in NSB and we wanted to check in and see how she was doing. Enjoy this interview and see what is popping off in her garden and how you can support local farmers during this time.
If you are interested in learning more about Green Flamingo Organics and/or signing up for their mailing list, be sure to head over to their website https://greenflamingoorganics.com or if you are in the New Smyrna Beach area head over to The Florida Local at 202 Julia Street from 7am - 12pm every Saturday to get your farm fresh and local veggies!
