Do you need a car in Homstead?
What about closer to Miami, like Hollywood, FL? Lots of fruit there, and other fruities, too, I believe. I think Doug Graham lived there (or nearby) for a long time.
There seems to be a strong 811 group in Bradenton Beach (west coast), too. I just joined their FB page LFRVBB. Check it out. Maybe people on there will give you some good suggestions.
I'm originally from Clearwater-Tampa area. I LOVED it. My husband is Palestinian and we just didn't notice the racism there that we do in other areas of the country. We miss it very much. Would like to move back someday. Don't give up your pursuit. You're on a brave and noble track. Much to be admired. .....ana xoxo
How is it the most perfect place on the planet?
Hi. I know i'm coming to the party a little late....I've lived in florida all my life, currently Hollywood Florida. I've lived in Miami - way too congested, South beach - fun but not a family environment, The florida keys - being on the water was nice but with the exception of Key West & Marathon there are no beaches, also lived in Ocala - very depressing! Florida is very expensive living , no matter where you live. Some places a little more than others, like smaller towns may be less but seem to also be lacking in positive lifestyles. Being fruitarian gets quite expensive. Very few farmers markets around, even less organic markets (which you pay a very high price for). However, as far as community and beauty, East Hollywood is definitely my favorite.
