Richardson, Texas

Gardening starts with hope for today and the promise of a better future. The faith-based Project Eden broke ground in the Dallas suburb of Richardson, Texas, in 2009 with the goal of feeding people, nourishing souls, and connecting the community. Starting with 16 plots, the garden has since more than doubled in size. Members donate 25 percent of their crop to food pantries, feeding hundreds of people in need of fresh produce in the surrounding area.
