The program included field trips and what we saw was amazing. Austin has managed (with the help of the SFC) to create a vibrant, growing (pun intended) community around growing your own food. I was completely amazed by the sheer number of community gardens in Austin.

|Some of the largest kale we had ever seen|
|The New Day Community Garden|
The gardens really inspired me. We have some great community gardens here in Dallas (more on that later) but I think we need more. The biggest part of the garden is not the plants, it's the community, and we can never have enough of that.
