Grove to Table: Bringing local fresh produce to you.

Grimal Grove now offers a boutique, market and tree nursery at True Value Hardware, 30770 Overseas Hwy in Big Pine Key. Up the road from the grove. We are also providing organically grown produce from the most trustworthy farms in Homestead. We supply the only local organic produce in the lower Keys. We supply stores, restaurants, and homes. We are in need of improving our refrigeration to improve our quality for you. We already raised $2,025 on Giving Tuesday, help us reach the remainder of our goal by December 2016.




Growing Hope Initiative’s mission for the Grimal Grove is to revitalize and showcase the history and landscape architecture that made the Grimal Grove a natural wonder of the Florida Keys and to offer the community a truly unique edible park, community arts and education center, and epicenter for self sufficiency in the Florida Keys.


The Grimal Grove proves to be the ideal location to address and enhance Growing Hope’s four key issues:

Environmental health
Artistic development
Community welfare

Grimal Grove will act as a catalyst for environmental and agricultural innovation, community engagement, voluntourism and entrepreneurship. The Grimal Grove is more than a destination for tropical fruit enthusiasts. It is a resource for the community including under-served marginalized populations and will strengthen the Florida Keys community.
