The Plot Against Hunger at the Our Savior Community Garden is part of Gardeners in Community Development, a Heifer International-sponsored organization in Dallas, TX.

At the garden, community members learn to grown their own organic vegetables. Other community members volunteer at the garden to help harvest crops.

A portion of the garden’s harvest goes to the Pleasant Grove Food Pantry, a volunteer-run pantry in conjunction with The North Texas Food Bank, across the street. In this way, GICD has found a way to bring people together for the betterment of the community – learning new trades and feeding those in need.
