Pickers Florida

Here at Picker’s, we are all about helping local communities in their quest for health and wellness in America. We do this by aiding the development of educational agriculture and local food production in America. By creating sustainable ecosystems capable of producing healthy, cost effective food for the community, within the same community, we establish strong foundations for effecting positive change from the inside, out.

 

THE PROBLEM WITH FOOD TODAY


Today a majority of the food you eat is produced at an industrial scale. By producing food the same way we make automobiles, modern industrial farming techniques have achieved unprecedented levels of food production at a relatively low cost. However through this process we are left with nutrient deficient fruits and vegetables grown in an environmentally damaging and highly toxic way. Over decades of use and abuse of these methods, we also see higher quality and wholesome food became more and more of a delicacy and less of an attainable option. This inevitably created ‘food deserts’ in communities all over the nation, and eating useless food became the norm for many Americans. That’s not right. Picker’s Health Investments believes that:

Accessible food should not destroy You or the Earth
Healthy food should not be a scarcity
True ‘Life Cycles’ are sustainable.


We believe in eating living food, in eating your plants when they are freshest so you get the highest quality fuel to perform at your best – the True “Life Cycle”. What we have now is nutrient deficient food, providing insufficient performance. It’s time for a change.

THE TRUE LIFE CYCLE


Creating a sustainable agricultural practice that teaches educational agriculture, grows the program into a micro-farm that produces food for the community, by the youth in the schools of that same community became the mission. This is how we envision a true ‘life cycle’. Establishing a system of consistent healthy food growth, education, and financial maintenance will feed the community for a lifetime.
