Recently, movie star Pam Grier visited Fort Worth to promote the ground breaking of the Pam Grier Community Garden, located at 3520 East Berry Street. The Community Garden is the brainchild of Jim and Gloria Austin, founders of the National Multicultural Western Heritage Museum.
“We feel very fortunate to have been able to share our vision with Ms. Grier and partnering with her on our mutual vision of empowering the youth in the community by teaching them the benefits of healthy eating and providing a hands-on experience that will teach them how to take control of their own health and wellness when it comes to food and nutrition,” said museum Executive Director Gloria Austin.
I snapped these photos at Ms. Grier’s booksigning at The Dock Bookshop in East Fort Worth. Ms. Grier, eloquently and passionately, spoke about the importance of community, education, health and hope. Fittingly, the Pam Grier Community Garden, even in the beginning stages of construction, already embodies these goals.
