Valencia Students Vital to Groundbreaking Farming Model

While farming in Florida is often a trying process 2016 was a fruitful year for 24-year-old Caroline Chomanics, a recent grad of Valencia’s horticulture program. In February, Chomanics joined Fleet Farming, an urban agriculture model that transforms neighborhood lawns into productive “farmlettes,” which are then harvested by a group of volunteers traveling by bike. She quickly rose from intern to farming coordinator to branch manager of Fleet’s flagship group of plots in Orlando’s Audubon Park neighborhood.
