Singer-songwriter Jack Johnson's All at Once social action network is committed to reaching out and lending a hand.

The following local organizations were participants in the All At Once Village Green during Jack Johnson's recent tour through Northeast Florida. The Johnson Ohana Foundation provided direct and matching donations to support these community partners.

**********

SLOW FOOD FIRST COAST
The local chapter of this international organization is committed to strengthening the connection between local food, strong farms and healthy communities on Florida’s First Coast. Contributions from the foundation helped underwrite Slow Food’s Tour de Farm in November 2017.

DIG LOCAL NETWORK
By way of community gardens, farmers’ markets and accessible education, Dig Local works to provide communities of all economic levels access to sustainably grown, local food. All at Once supported operating costs for instructors, garden managers, outreach coordinators and market managers.

ST. JOHNS RIVERKEEPER
This group is an independent voice that defends, advocates and activates others for the protection and restoration of the St. Johns River. With their donation, they were able to show a screening of Jack’s film “Smog of the Sea,” host a workshop about microplastics, talk about ways to reduce plastics in our waterways locally and host a river clean-up.

MATANZAS RIVERKEEPER
Matanzas Riverkeeper is a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the Matanzas River and its watershed through advocacy, education and outreach. The group hosted a clean-up event in conjunction with the concert, and their foundation funds are being used for general operating needs.

SURFRIDER FOUNDATION
The Surfrider Foundation is a non-profit grassroots organization dedicated to the protection and enjoyment of our world’s oceans, waves and beaches. The First Coast Chapter was founded in 2002 and spans the First Coast of Florida, from the Georgia border to the end of Anastasia Island.

COMPASSIONATE ST. AUGUSTINE
This grassroots group of residents in St. Augustine and beyond affirms the Charter for Compassion and all efforts to live by the Golden Rule. Their donation was used for the "Let Freedom Ring” Chimes Project, which will be a Civil Rights and African American public art commemoration. Compassionate St. Augustine’s partner, Keep Riberia Pointe Green, also received a donation for the Lincolnville Community Garden.

KEEPERS OF THE COAST
The mission of Keepers of the Coast is to create an active community working to ensure that the coastal systems of Northeast Florida remain a beautiful part of our local environment. Funds from All At Once will support their inaugural sustainable living event, Full Circle Fest, to be held on Earth Day, Sunday, April 22 in downtown St. Augustine at Eddie Vickers Park, 399 Riberia Street.
