Thank you, Mind Your Garden and Texas Health Blue Zones for welcoming Women in the Environment and giving us a tour of the farm. It was a beautiful day and we loved to join in to learn what you are doing and the steps we can all take toward our own gardens and farms.

Piloted in 2020 by North Texas Healthy Community, the Culled Produce Recovery Project brings together a grocery chain, a transporter of compostable materials, and small urban farms such as Mind Your Garden to address food waste, overtaxed landfills and food insecurity.

Mission Statement of Mind Your Garden:

Mind Your Garden (MYG) is an urban farm located in Southeast Fort Worth. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) considers its community a food desert. Steven and Ursula’s families struggle with food-related diseases, which are common in areas with little to no access to fresh and healthy food. Their mission is to support the creation of healthy, vibrant, and sustainable communities through farming, social engagement, and self-sufficiency training and education.

Mind your Garden and Feed Your Soul.
