About Us

the Heart of Texas Urban Gardening Coalition (HOT UGC) brings us back to the earth, educates us to live healthier lives, and builds sustainable community through natural gardening.

Our VISION:

  • To foster cooperation between different community groups;
  • To encourage sustainable community development;
  • To support production and consumption of healthy vegetables; and
  • To develop community financial literacy through entrepreneurship all because of our shared passion for gardening.

Since its inception in the spring of 2005, the Urban Gardening Coalition has served as a unique group facilitating discussion and organizing activities for individuals and organizations who are interested in gardening as a means of building community. Our current garden activities include after-school gardening programs partnered with CIS schools as well as coordinating gardening activities at many churches and community organizations across the Heart of Texas. However, UGC is much more than growing gardens. Our projects span from entreprenurial gardening to skill shares and food stamp outreach. As a coalition, the role of the UGC is to encourage and support partners and interested individuals to carry out identified objectives – by providing support through shared resources of garden skills and knowledge.
