Deep Ellum Urban Garden Fund

Our Mission as the Deep Ellum Urban Garden is to GROW (food, health, knowledge, beauty, community).

Our vision is to provide opportunities for people to grow food for themselves increase their healthy activity, get to know their neighbors, learn from each other, and create a productive and beautiful commons.

Our vision is already taking shape as neighbors came together to form the Deep Ellum Urban Gardens Committees. These volunteers have helped permit the land, create blue prints, and have done the soil testing. Now we turn to our community to help us raise funds to get us from here to there.

I hope everybody has been able to check out the Gardens in person! I'm glad/embarrassed to say we really are now getting the shirts, we did before and then had problems with the screens. We are going to have them ready for Art Fest so they can be picked up or mailed to our out of town downers. You will get an email shortly asking for your shirt/hoodie size again.
