In 2015, the TWEF Urban Garden was created

in an effort to help communities near the TWEF Empowerment Center that are within a USDA’s designated “food desert” and provide fresh produce to residents who otherwise have to drive more than four miles round trip to the closest grocery store.
The Urban Garden provides produce for local farmer’s market, a cross-cultural connections within the food desert with access to fresh fruits and vegetables, and weekly physical activities. The Urban Garden promotes STEM and Agriculture with positive behavioral changes that include better nutrition and increases physical activity among participants while teaching entrepreneurial skills to the youth through the farmers’ market.”

Beats & Beets is a lively garden party in the city promoting STEM and Agriculture education. Beats & Beets features gardening demos, planting, networking, local vendors, and live music.
