NuWaters Co-op is a small co-op of about 200 members that was started to address food access issues in the historic 3rd Ward community in Houston Texas. It started with meager resources and has been in operation for about 3 years. With a small but eager crew of volunteers, the co-op is open 7 days a week, manages a 3 acre urban farm that is being prepared to grow heirloom, organic, non-gmo produce to be sold at the farm (Fresh Greens), and a 2 acre site for the building of tiny houses. We are the little co-op that could. We are presenting our simple, humble story as a case study, with the hope that anyone else wanting to address food access issues can learn and hopefully help their community have access to food.
