Galveston could provide a sustainable agricultural program making island-fresh fruits and vegetables available to residents year round.
Island food banks and support systems for the needy, such as Our Daily Bread and Gleaning of the Harvest, could share in the bounty of local produce.
Classes and other educational resources were available on the Island to promote and teach sustainable farming techniques and the importance of nutritious food choices.
Seeding Galveston is making all of this a reality - with your help!
There is much more to Seeding Galveston than garden beds and crop harvests. Giving back to the community through educational programs, a gardening library, support for island food banks, a CSA delivery program and an Agrihealth initiative that will support the connection between the growing and eating of nutritious food: All of this rounds out Seeding Galveston’s mission and goals.
