The Urban Gardening Coalition is having the groundbreaking ceremony for their new Urban Training Farm on July 9th at 10:00am at 312 Chestnut Street Waco, TX 76704.  They invite everyone to come out and show their support for the program. The UGC has received support or pledges of support from the Cooper Foundation, the McLennan County Hunger Coalition, our board of directors, private donors, and a host of other partners to make this project a reality, and is excited the project is finally becoming a reality.  If you are planning to come, it is next to the old Farmers Market Building in East Waco, and it is best to park on Mann Street.  Contact Zac Bryan at 817-909-3608 or zacugc@gmail.com if you have any questions about the event or how you can become more involved with the program.

The UGC has recently been on NPR and KCEN, The links to those stories can be found below :
