Welcome to Harvest Hub!

Harvest Hub (a project of Earth Learning) is an online marketplace and distribution network for local, sustainably-grown food.

We make it possible for local producers and food buyers to connect and participate in the movement towards
 a local, sustainable food system in the Greater Everglades bioregion.


Ordering from Harvest Hub helps to make our farmers viable, our people healthy, our communities resilient, our food just and fair, our ecosystems sustainable, and our local economy thrive, now and into the future.

We're growing and so is our product list. Check the website weekly for new items.

Our Criteria

Local

We connect you to  products that are 100% grown locally or produced with at least 25% locally-grown ingredients...

What is Local?
Local means within the Greater Everglades (southern Florida)

What is Further Afield?
Sometimes we go Further Afield for items that just don't grow here (so rest of Florida and into the Southeast)

Organic and Beyond

Certified Organic is a certification defined by the U.S.D.A. that ensures the producers employ certain procedures and avoid certain harmful chemicals...It is particularly important for food that comes from Further Afield and you do not have a working knowledge of how that food was grown.

Food product labeling can be confusing. Inform yourself, so you know what you are eating and what practices you are supporting.

Choosing Your Food: What to Avoid

Food product labeling can be down right deceptive. Food is meant to be healing, yet our industrialized food system produces foods that are toxic and harmful to people and planet.
