Art Friedrich - Urban Oasis Project

Art Friedrich co founded Urban Oasis Project in 2010 when he moved to Miami and couldn't find a local food movement. In seven years, he's helped plant over 100 gardens, managed a farm and market employing the formerly homeless, accepted over $100,000 in SNAP benefits for fresh local produce and created the 2016 "Best of Miami" Farmers Market in the Upper Eastside area at Legion Park.   This year, Urban Oasis Project has launched new initiatives such as the Farmers First Aid Fund and the Fruit and Veggie Prescription Program.
