HEAL THE PLANET FARMERS MARKET


Every 1st & 3rd Saturday From 9:00 am To 2:00 pm Starting January 15, 2022 

Join us at the Heal The Planet Farmers Market in Snyder Park every 1st and 3rd Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., year-round, rain or shine. The farmer’s market is the first of a kind for Snyder Park. Shop for farm-fresh produce, crafts, jewelry, and much more from local food makers. Farmer’s markets promote sustainability and minimize waste and pollution. Our vendors will provide access to organic foods, free from synthetic pesticides to protect people and our planet. Help us keep our local farmers farming.

SNYDER PARK EVENTS


Snyder Park is a natural destination designed for connection and empowerment. Experience a diversity of ways to live sustainably and embody wellness while building community with nature and neighbors. 

Located in the city of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, Snyder Park invites city dwellers to get to know the ecosystem and wild plants native to the area. Heal the Planet leads monthly free, guided nature tours through the tropical hardwood hammocks of the park, as well as workshops and classes for students of all ages in the park’s Butterfly Garden, Edible Landscape Garden, and Tropical Food Forest. Snyder Park also has playgrounds shaded by live oak trees, sand volleyball courts, disc golf, bike trails, and is most famous for its bark park and big, blue lake for dogs to swim in.

Heal The Planet invites any child with unique learning needs or who is on the spectrum to join us for a hands-on gardening experience on the first Saturday of every month at Snyder Park.

YOUNG PLANET LEADERS CONTEST


Our mission is to feature, empower and inspire young social change leaders who use their creativity and actions for the betterment of all mankind creating a healthier and more sustainable planet. We are committed to supporting these young leaders who are encouraging and inspiring others to make a difference.

A Young Planet Leader sets an example by their actions as though the entire planet is held in balance and any deed they might do could tip the scales. They understand that each choice and action they make directly influences what our planet will look like now and in the future.

We envision a planet where each and every one of us shows up in our greatest potential and highest expression of ourselves for the health and wellbeing of our planet, and all its inhabitants.

Each month Heal The Planet will feature a Young Planet Leader who is committed to creating a huge positive impact on our planet and inspiring others to do the same. Each quarter one of these monthly featured Young Planet Leaders will be eligible to win a $1,000 grant courtesy of our founder. If you are between 8 -18 years old, or know of a candidate who wishes to be considered as a Young Planet Leader, please send us a 100 word or less description of what you and your organization is doing.

FOOD FOREST GARDENS


Heal the Planet is currently creating Food Forest Gardens throughout our community! Our intention in sharing these systems is to reconnect neighbors with nature in the common spaces remaining in the urban environment.  We began in the city of Fort Lauderdale’s Snyder Park with our beautiful and productive demonstration site for visitors to learn how to transform waste into energy and grow food abundantly and sustainably.

Our team is spreading the gift of Food Forest Gardens throughout our community wherever they are desired and needed, from backyards to open lots.  Reach out to megan@healtheplanet.com to learn more about how together we can transform your underutilized space into a living classroom and unique gathering space that will provide you and your neighbors with easily accessible and cared for nutritious foods, greater community resilience, a habitat for biodiversity, and a common space not far from where you lay your head at night to connect with the whole system of life on Earth.

SPREAD LOVE MURAL CHALLENGE


What started out as a fun mural project to Spread Love throughout our local communities has organically taken root and expanded to the west coast, garnering an ever-growing social media presence and recognition from the SunSentinel.
If you or anyone you know has a highly visible wall/building and is interested in helping us Spread Love, please contact us below.Contact Us At info@healtheplanet.com
