We wanted to tell you what a awesome product you have. We were in the eastern Sierra's for a week and mosquitoes were huge. Put your product on and they scattered. I gave a vial to a sales person at the Trout Fitter in Mammoth and he did tried it said it worked. Also gave one to a customer. Everywhere we went if someone brought up mosquitos we showed ours and they took pictures. Thank you so much again for the wonderful product.

About Garden of Eden Project
Sarasota is an incredible place, with incredible people, and even better weather. Although we’re a thriving city, we currently have no public shelters, and extremely limited access to betterment programs, clean water, healthy food, or public restroom facilities. Fueled by a love for the city, its residents, and the desire to make our city awesome, we kicked around a few ideas, and got to work.
It started with an outreach team of sorts, with several of us hiking through the streets of downtown Sarasota on a daily basis handing out fruit, ice-cold spring water, clothes, dog food, and other various supplies to our residents in need. Those who couldn’t make the trips provided supplies, moral support, and occasionally, a delicious home cooked meal for the tribe.
These daily hikes eventually turned into the desire to do more. Things got real. Then we decided to form a legitimate 501(c)(3) non-profit community organization, and Garden of Eden Project was born.
Our first goal is the creation of a strategically placed, organic urban garden in downtown Sarasota. Think community garden–with an emphasis on generating as much food as possible. We’ll then distribute the items to currently homeless and impoverished residents in the downtown and surrounding areas. Any resident is welcome to help out with the gardening and/or distribution, and in return will benefit from the fruits (and veggies!) of their labor.
From there, we have high hopes to expand our organization, and impact. While we want to make sure everyone has access to healthy food, we’re also working on ways to help residents escape the cycle of poverty, and obtain permanent housing. But first, we have to get busy gardening. As things continue to grow, we’ll continue to look for ways make a difference. We welcome your ideas, too!
“But wait, doesn’t this just make it easier for people to be homeless?”
Our goal is to make living in Sarasota easier for everyone, from the people currently living on the streets, to the first responders and local business owners working hard out here every day.
Dehydration and a lack of vital nutrients, combined with prolonged exposure to the heat, is a bad combination. Sometimes this leads to hospitalization. But all the time it leads to increased stress, anger, and hopelessness. And that makes things harder for everyone. Our initial focus is centered on providing residents with water and basic nutrition to help combat dehydration, malnutrition, and number of incidents requiring first responders. And, if possible, make everyone a little happier in the process.
We don’t want anyone to be homeless, and our goal is certainly not to inspire more people to be homeless. We just want to be generous folks, doing nice stuff, and have a cool, friendly city.
How you can help
Urban Backpacking: Fill up a backpack with as much water/food/supplies as possible. Walk around the city. Give stuff out. When you run out, you’re finished! (Great exercise, by the way) We go out every day (except Sunday, so we can recover a bit) at 10 am(ish) or 2 pm(ish). Time varies depending upon weather and other events.
Stuff: We’re always in need of water, fruit, freezer space in downtown area, unwanted plots of land, socks, unwanted fruit/veggies, high-fives and notes of encouragement, plants, backpacks, bicycles, and flip-flops.
Gardening: We should be gardening soon! Right now, we’re in the process of finding a suitable piece of property for our first garden. But once we do, there will be lots of work to be done. We can’t wait! For right now, email us with any cool ideas you may have about growing food in Florida.
We would love for as many people to be involved as possible, in a number of capacities. If we can get a bunch of people to start doing nice stuff, the world will take notice, and we can do a ton of good. As things progress, there will be even more opportunities that become available. No matter what your skill set, you can make an impact. You can change the world.
Penta5 USA LLC and its MosquitoPaQ™ division are proud to be working with Garden of Eden personnel to hand out our MosquitoPaQ™ no-bite ANYTIME™ Lotion VialPaQs to the homeless and street people in downtown Sarasota. On a recent Saturday morning, Dr John Harlin was seen handing out the VialPaQs to the homeless people on the streets of Sarasota and also explaining the benefits of using the product to protect themselves against mosquito bites. In light of the recent increase in Zika cases, it has become even more important to protect against mosquito bites.
MosquitoPaQ™ hands out 2 VialPaqs to the homeless at the Miami Rescue mission on Sunday, the 14th of August.
