There is a great organisation here in Austin called Urban Roots. It gets kids who would normally be "at risk" and turns them onto gardening. It not only teaches them how to garden from seed to harvest, it teaches them how to bring their product to market and what all that entails. Max Elliot (Executive Director) is a lot like this guy. He is a true revolutionary.

If you want to support an organisation like this (even from afar) they could always use the help.
