We want to reclaim what it means to have dominion, be fruitful, and multiply by being good stewards to what God has given to us. We want to provide healthy resources to our community through sustainable agriculture and natural processes in order to build meaningful and lasting relationships.

Matt and Amanda Watson
Matt is a native Texan, studied Agricultural Communication and Journalism at Texas A&M University (where he met Hank), and is earning his Masters of Divinity at Southern Seminary. He married his best friend Amanda in 2013 and she is the one who actually got him into gardening at their first home together in Greensboro, NC. They moved back to Texas in 2018 to work with church planting in San Antonio, be on mission to their family, and engage their community through the farm.
Amanda is a native of northern California (there is a difference) and immigrated to Texas in 2005 by the grace of God. She loves Harry Potter and is the oldest daughter in Sense and Sensibility. She earned her bachelors in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Boston University and a PhD in Medicinal Biochemistry at the University of North Carolina in Greensboro. She likes eating fresh and real food, and somehow convinced Matt to do the same.
Our Board of Directors
Hank Balch is a fifth-generation Texan, who grew up on a small ranch east of Austin, graduated from Texas A&M with an agricultural development degree, obtained his MDiv from Southern Seminary, and currently resides with his beautiful wife and rambunctious boys in northwest San Antonio. He is a small business owner in the medical device consulting industry, hosts a weekly international podcast about cleaning and disinfection of surgical instruments, and loves bringing content to life through his various writing projects. Hank is a huge fan of GK Chesterton, connoisseur of Shiner beer, and appreciator of all things kingdom-building. If Abraham Kuyper’s declaration is true, that “There is not a square inch in the whole domain of our human existence over which Christ, who is Sovereign over all, does not cry, Mine!”, then that touches all we are, all we do, and yes…all we eat.
