Elizabeth Samudio, a transplant, brought her commitment of green living to north Texas ten years ago when she filled an earthen container with herbs, blooms and edibles in front of Starbucks. No surprise, since her roots go deep into the fertile culture of the Pacific Northwest. Her family cultivated farm living, land development and the wilderness into her at an early age. Since, Elizabeth’s love of nature is her first language after moving to Fort Worth she yearned for natural beauty; hence, her out of the container introduction took hold and grew into an all organic garden and eco friendly landscape business.
After about with cancer she continued to plow up follow ground and started Two hands garden program with a vision to grow organic food and community in an urban landscape. Given her passion for sustainability, when the DFW permaculture project came to the area she earned her permaculture design certification. Signs of Samudio’s love of splendor and commitment to natural conservation can be spotted throughout north Texas from private enclaves, commercial projects, to community gardens. This tree hunger continues to be sighted in a variety of publications as well as national television.
Elizabeth, her life partner James, and their son Elliot Ehr run and operate Elizabeth Anna’s Urban Farm and Market with the help of family, partners, staff, and interns.
