Urban Gardens Info

Why Gardens?
Because gardens produce healthier food. Only 2% of American children eat enough fruits and vegetables, and 1 in 3 American children born after 2000 is at risk for Type II diabetes. A garden is an introduction to the real, healthy food students and families need access to.

Because gardens can help fix America's nature deficit. With more than 80% of Americans living in cities and suburbs, we need to work harder than ever to teach the values of natural processes.

Because gardens are a living laboratory for education. Not just healthy food—a lesson on what producing healthy food requires. Not just exposure to nature—a way for children to literally harvest the fruits of their labor.

A True Seed Investment 
For as little as $10, you can help a community reap all the benefits a garden has to offer. In just 39 days, we plan to raise $2500 per garden; to feed,  teach, and inspire people in each of these 100 communities. Here are a few things our garden plans to do with your donations:

The mission of the Woodall Foundation Community Garden is to empower our school’s community by creating a native,organic learning garden in our courtyard that may serve as an integrated academic laboratory, arts venue and holistic learning center. It is only through the active, structured and purposeful work of our school’s community (students, families, staff, faculty, administration and community members) that we may transform the lowest-performing school in Dallas into a world-class center for learning and community development that easily earns an “Academically Exceptional” rating. We will add raised beds, walkways, student-designed signage and seasonal vegetables to the garden, as well as native plants to the school courtyard. The school is partnering with Texas Discovery Gardens to facilitate the garden.

Look Good, Do Good
With every contribution to our garden, donors will receive organic, ethical perks from PACT. Our socks, undies, and t-shirts are produced to high standards of sustainability, with the comfiest organic materials we can find. You'll be giving out of the goodness of your heart, and in return you'll get PACT goodies. It's a win-win situation.
