Fleet Farmlette

  Wednesday on “First Coast Connect,” we spoke with Darnell Smith from Jax Chamber and Pastor R. L. Gundy about the latest attempt to expand Jacksonville’s Human Rights Ordinance to include the LGBT community.        

We also heard from Voices of Hope programming chair Rebecca Rejtman Bennett and Museum of Science and History curator Paul Bourcier about a new exhibit about Anne Frank and our Going Green segment highlighted Melissa Beaudry of Fleet Farming.

A Jacksonville woman is hoping to unite the community and offset some of the negative environmental effects of food production by creating small community farms.

A Northeast Florida nonprofit, The Public Trust Environmental Legal Institute of Florida, awarded her $5,000 this month to begin the project.
