It is inexpensive and simple to make, durable and requires minimum maintenance. Commercial systems available at the big box stores cost $30 to $60 and weigh 120 pounds. A grow pail with soil and water weighs in at 40 pounds. Great for growing vegetables, herbs and flowers.

The Suncoast Co-op was formed from 5 fellow gardeners with a desire to sell what they were growing out of their own backyards for the general public. These gardeners had worked together with various community garden campaigns and education for Permaculture in the past and wanted to form a service for the community to provide fresh, local and chemical free food.
Our vision is to re-create our local food economies by giving meaningful work for small farmers to pool together our labor, capital, and resources to create a business we all own and benefit from the profits for distribution and marketing of our goods to our customers who also support us. We hope to create a rich valuable marketplace that provides nutritious diverse food for our community.
Suncoast Co-op serves the West Pasco and North Pinellas County areas via an online marketplace your place to find local food grown by local gardeners and other cottage industry made goods.
