Be the Light

Se Luz Productions, “Be the Light,” provides life-changing experiences by educating, inspiring, and activating communities to embrace vegetable gardening for better nutrition, ending hunger, and caring for the earth.

Build a nationwide community of people willing to experience vegetable gardening and practice it throughout their lives.

  • Dignity: We believe in expanding people’s horizons in a respected way.
  • Compassion: We strive to care for the communities and the earth. 
  • Learning: We aim to inspire people to discover the wonders of nature. 
  • Service: We embrace the opportunity to give back. 
  • Sustainability: We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint.

We are a group of innovators in the fields of media and entertainment, education, finance, science, and urban farming. We are committed to being part of the change needed to bring a better future for our communities. We realize healthy eating habits start by involving kids and parents to appreciate how to grow vegetables and then engaging them to cook what they harvest. This is a model that has brought results in our homes. We want to share with the world the life wonders we have experienced in our gardens.

These are our programs

Building My Veggie Garden

Building My Veggie Garden

Building my Veggie Garden is our educational video series on YouTube and other social media channels that addresses three concerns about sustenance: food availability, self-reliance, and interest in healthy food. The mission of the show is to equip our audience with tools to make better nutritious choices by exploring the world of vegetables with a wondering and playful mind.

Community Patch

Community Patch

We are building a community of gardeners in two community gardens in the Central Florida area. One of our patches is in St. Petersburg, FL. We try to grow mostly greens in this patch. One of our precious plants in this patch is chipilin, a perennial legume that is native to Central America. It is considered one of the 16 most important species of edible leaves in the world. Our Second patch is in Largo, FL. This is where we grow Roselle (hibiscus tea), an exquisite flower and one of the finest teas in the world. We also grow lemon grass, squashes and watermelons, among other veggies.



We are also building a community of gardeners who have transformed their backyard into a vegetable garden. Their experience is invaluable and we appreciate it when they use our YouTube channel to impart their wisdom. Our friends live in various cities in the Tampa Bay area. They all share our enthusiasm about the life wonders in vegetable gardening.

Food Forest Gardening Community

Food Forest Gardening Community

Located at the Beacon Food Forest, this garden is our educational center where families come to learn, and volunteers help us grow vegetables to give away in the food deserts of the Central Florida area. This program is a partnership with UUC. We have a main event once a month on the 4th Friday of the Month. At this event we have gardening classes for families. We also gather with our volunteers to work in our garden once a week.
