University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences Extension Agent Robert Kluson is trying to get the word out to farmers markets and low-income residents around the state to participate in Fresh Access Bucks, which began with support from a Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Specialty Crop Block grant, along with Janes Trust, a nonprofit foundation.
It gives more business for small farmers markets and helps those folks who need it, said Kluson, who works in the UF/IFAS extension office in Sarasota County.

With food and fuel prices soaring and recent scares over jalapenos and spinach, more people are looking to their own backyards for food, said Robert Kluson, an agricultural scientist with Sarasota County's extension office and the University of Florida's Small Farms and Alternative Enterprise Program.
It's highly sustainable production on less land," Kluson said.
The look of urban agriculture

CULTIVATING CONNECTIONS: For the past three years, Dr. Robert Kluson, shown here planting muscadine grapes in a new vineyard at the Crowley Museum and Nature Center in Myakka, has worked to open up markets to local farmers.
You may think you're fighting the good fight when you spurn Chilean asparagus or opt for Plant City strawberries, but Dr. Robert Kluson is on the front lines of the war for local foods.He's been an organic farmer in California and a land manager for Sarasota County, but for the past three years his focus has been bringing local agriculture and local markets together.
As the agriculture/natural resources extension agent for the Sarasota branch of the UF/IFAS Extension, Dr. Kluson spends his days meeting with farmers and chefs, big corporations and tiny distributors, trying to figure out better ways to get local food to local folk.He travels as far south as Fort Myers and as far north as Gainesville to put together coalitions of growers, suppliers and buyers.According to him, the market is ripe for keeping locally produced food in the community.
What is it you do, exactly?
Kluson: I'm very interested in linking local agriculture to local markets, beating the bushes to find people who are looking for local food and finding people to grow it.
