Community gardens are an opportunity for urban dwellers to share their contributions to a public garden lot, share the produce, and generate an income by selling their fruits and vegetables. Unlike urban farms, community gardens are entrepreneurial in nature, allowing those working on them to both save money on food and generate an additional income.

PolyWes Gardens is a social entrepreneurship non-profit community based in Eastside Fort Worth. The organization began in 2016 as an entrepreneurial garden, and is currently aiming to expand through a variety of community programs.

PolyWes Gardens announced the launch of Trolley Pride, a mobile farmers’ market that will serve a 35 square-mile area of Southeast Fort Worth. Trolley Pride is the result of the community’s effort to recycle a decommissioned 20 passenger Austin city trolley bus, which will be used to sell fresh fruits and vegetables to Fort Worth residents.

Future plans for Trolley Pride including the addition of a fully-functional professional kitchen for catering events and food demonstrations, in an effort to introduce organic, locally-grown fruits and vegetables to the local market. Furthermore, the organization plans to expand its fleet with the addition of new vehicles.

PolyWes Gardens has also announced the Farmacy Prescription program, a partnership with JPS Health Network, Planned for Health and other local organizations. JPS will provide fresh fruits and vegetables through vouchers redeemable at Trolley Pride.

The two programs are part of the community organization’s efforts to bring attention to the local sustainable entrepreneurship movement. To this extent, PolyWes Gardens will collaborate with other local organizations, including Friends of Cobb Park and Tarrant County College.
