Teresa and Pat O’Donnell are new members of the Southside Place Community Garden. And do they know something about gardening! They are the founders of Plant-it-Forward, which teaches new Texans how to become urban farmers.
Last week, we got to sit in on a Plant-it-Forward training session with farmers from the Congo, Cameron, and Darfour and then see Farmer Roy’s garden and farm stand (1318 Sul Ross, 77006). We highly recommend a trip to the farm stand and garden on a Saturday morning to buy fresh veggies and help a good cause.
The story of the founding of Plant-it-forward is inspiring and can be viewed on Tedx https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLTggYKknZw (or just google Teresa O’Donnell/TED talks on YouTube).
