How we make a difference

Our goal is to increase access to healthy foods through community agriculture projects.

We want to teach community members to raise and grow their own food. We will also train members of Smith County on how to divert potential agricultural waste to those in need. We have developed a directory of local agriculture resources, and are piloting a backyard gardening program for families. We will also be connecting local farmers with food pantries through Ample Harvest. Our team includes farmers, master gardeners, educators, and healthy food enthusiasts.

The Smith County Food Security Council's Urban Agriculture Workgroup has compiled a list of local farmers and farmer's markets. Our hope is that it will help connect community members to locally grown food that is nutritious and affordable.
