Food, Agriculture and Nutrition
Following ten years of experience in the federal government intelligence community, Megan Sims returned home to Central Texas to build healthier communities through gardening. Sims works alongside homeowners and businesses to create outdoor environments that encourage active lifestyles while also building and maintaining vegetables gardens that enable healthy diets.
During PLS, Sims created an organization that makes local food more accessible and approachable for Central Texans by facilitating field trips and seminars at local food sources. Participants in the field trips and seminars now have greater access to local food and incorporate healthier food into their everyday diet.
