Michael Bell used to sell drugs outside the Stewpot.
But with the help of the homeless outreach in downtown Dallas, he’s now in a different business.
Calling himself Michael the gardener, he tends more than three-quarters of an acre across from the ministry on Young Street.
“Working in the garden helps calm me down,” said Bell, 32.
The site of the garden was nothing but two concrete slabs before it was transformed into an oasis of 90 beds to grow produce.
