Growers Alliance of Central Texas

The first farmers’ cooperative in the Central Texas area working on behalf of full-time sustainable farmers, the Growers Alliance of Central Texas was formed in 2010 to improve business practices, provide a forum for advice and support on issues ranging from seed selection to rallying against encroachment. The AFWA grant will be used to help gain nonprofit status, renew its annual survey of “Truly Local” restaurants, and establish a Medical Relief Fund.
