H2O volunteered at a local project called Genesis Gardens this weekend digging post-holes, clearing land, and doing other farm-related work. Genesis Gardens has a new take on helping the homeless population. Instead of building another homeless shelter (not that that would be a bad idea, Austin’s community is in dire need of more homeless shelters), they’ve decided to build a self-sustaining community where people who are out of a job and need a place to stay can come for affordable housing. They can even work on the farm to pay their rent if they don’t have enough money. This is a huge project, a whopping 27 acres of land will eventually be made into a self-sustaining community, and we’re so glad we can have a hand in turning this wonderful idea into reality.
