Fall23 -Green Seedling COVER

About the Green Seedling Magazine

The Green Seedling Magazine was created, as part of a two year (9/21 - 9/23) grant project, supporting the Acres Homes Community in Houston Texas. This grant was part of a Be Well™ Acres Homes initiative of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, and was developed and produced by Leslie Mattison under the PVAMU's fiscal sponsorship, on behalf of Beauty's Community Garden and its Community Partner Organization, PEACE through PIE.

The magazine's purpose focused on Beauty's mission to address communities with limited access to fresh plant-based foods, and the resulting health disparities because of diet. The magazine helps to bridge the gap, in food access and health, by empowering the reader on how to grow and eat foods that promote health and wellbeing.

Although the grant is over, you can still gain access to each Green Seedling Magazine issue. Just complete the form below to receive an email with all the links to each digital issue.  Enjoy 🙂
