Heidi Sloan

Heidi Sloan works at Genesis Gardens and Community First Village.  This project is just the latest in a line of “goodness” started by founder Alan Graham back in the late 1990’s.  Graham and his friends began delivering meals out of the back of a minivan to men and women they found living on the streets of Austin, Texas.  Since then, the program has expanded into Mobile Loaves and Fishes which has served over 4 million meals to the homeless community.

Today, Mobile Loaves and Fishes has expanded into a community of little homes that are available to the chronically homeless of Austin.  The homes are made available to them to help bring them out of homelessness -- to give them a place, a community, a home.  Part of that village is Genesis Gardens where the crops are washed, bunched, canned, pickled, preserved or cooked and provided to the homeless.

On the outskirts of Austin, Texas, I met a FarmHer who changed my perspective. I met a FarmHer who is not only compassionate about the homeless population in her city, but she is working with a group of passionate people who are acting. They are acting on the issues and they are creating change.
