Ella Austin Community Garden

ella austin community garden

Volunteers from the University of the Incarnate Word (UIW) helped Ella Austin Development Staff create a youth garden to teach children how to grow and harvest their own vegetables. Dr. Jeff Crane from the University of the Incarnate Word, and Ella Austin's Robert Langston are tending the community garden with the youth and teaching lessons in nutrition about the plants they cultivate, while Program Coordinator, Mary Ann Lovett, helps harvest the produce, then turns these veggies or fruits into a meal, with the youth helping to prepare the dish.
