The History Of Harmony.
From its humble beginnings as a historic hay farm and citrus orchard, learn how a dream of a better way of life became the reality of Harmony.
The History of Harmony
The Harmony project originally began as the Harmony institute, a non-profit foundation created by former Orlando Humane Society/SPCA of Central Florida director Martha Lentz in 1996. As the guiding light of the developing Harmony community, the Institute exists to promote the psychological, emotional and public health values of living in an integrated balance with pets, wildlife and environmental ecologies.
As co-founders of Harmony, Martha and her husband Jim considered a number of locations for the Institute’s headquarters site, finally arriving at the current property – 11,000 acres of pristine Florida nature, an area known historically as the Triple E Ranch. The Institute and development company formed a partnership to develop the land in accordance with the underlying principles governing the Institute, reserving a 100 acres of Harmony for the Institute’s nonprofit purposes.
The private company developing the town of Harmony is dedicated to the idea that communities planned for the well-being of all their residents – human and non-human alike – will produce not only a higher quality of life, but real marketplace returns as well.
Today, the thriving community of Harmony is home to approximately 1,000 residents, many of them families. Together we successfully fulfill the vision of environmentally intelligent living – as well as proudly serve as prudent caretakers and contributors to the continuing history of Central Florida.
