Mario, 

Since you live in Florida, check into an organization called Veterans Farm, which is based in Jacksonville, FL. Here is the link:

They do kind of what you are describing. Maybe you can call Adam Burke, Founder and he can give you some tips. I saw a documentary on his story and took note. I do not know Adam nor does he know me. I just saw the story and it made an impression on me so I copied the information last July. They formed a Coalition and maybe you can be a part of that in some way to help jump start your urban farm.

Hope it helps.

I was born in San Antonio, Texas but I have been living in Tampa, Florida since October 2000.  Presently, I am attempting to develop an urban farm for military veterans to use as a form of therepy.  Backyard gardening is also good therapy for anyone with a  highly stressed job.  Ofcourse money is required to set all of this in motion.  I am at the point of createing a business plan and getting counceling service from the SBA and VBOC (Veterans Business Outreach Center).  I'll be checking with AgforLife for help, your opinions, etc...

FYI, there is also a program based in Colorado that teaches veterans to become farmers or Farm Managers:   http://veteranstofarmers.org/
