Lockhart Acres Farm (7780 Eden Park Road, Orlando, FL 32810), run by Regina Melvin, is a nonprofit farm dedicated to helping low income people eat healthy. At Lockhart Acres Farm, Regina and others grow all organic foods during a specific season. Other people come in to work the farm collectively in exchange for produce. In the near future there will be a farm-stand where they will be accepting food-stamps. The land will soon be welcoming chickens, and other animals as well.
