If you buy this experience

Every participant of our Swarm Ride events is not only learning about the joy and power of growing your food, but also contributing to our mission of empowering all generations to grow food, which engages with hundreds of elementary age children through our gardening education curriculums. Seeing first-hand the power of using lawn spaces for a much more realized purpose is key to realizing the detriment of plain grass. Not only are grass lawns completely useless for maintaining biodiversity for pollinators and various other important species, but the care that goes into them is horribly harmful for the environment. From pesticide use and overwatering to CO2 emissions from mowing equipment, lawns can contribute to over one-third of all climate change. By attending our Private Swarms and supporting Fleet Farming, you are contributing to a crucial movement of utilizing our shared resources in harmony with nature. Growing food is perfect example of how we can live our lives better and kinder to our Earth.
