Organizations - Florida Earth Foundation
Florida Earth is a nonprofit organization that is best described as a developer of knowledge exchange platforms in water disciplines. Originally an initiative of the University of Florida's Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences, Florida Earth was turned into a nonprofit in 2004 with the original intent of developing education and outreach programs for Everglades Restoration. In 2005 the organization was approached by the United Nations to develop a program that worked with UNESCO-IHE, the world's largest water university, located in Delft, Netherlands. Since then, Florida Earth has now four international programs as well as a suite of domestic programs in Florida and the US.
