At the beginning of April 2019, the Social Committee at WestEast Design Group, (a group of staff members who host socials for the firm), launched a fitness initiative challenging the staff to get active and begin to take steps towards a better lifestyle. To measure the staff’s progress, participants weighed in every Monday morning and had their total BMI calculated over the course of a month and a half. At the close of the fitness challenge this past month, General Manager, Katherine Kimm, sought to extend the fitness challenge beyond the weight loss aspect and examine what we consume and how it effects our overall wellness. The idea came to her following a visit to the Historic Pearl Brewery Farmer’s Market and striking up a conversation with Travis Krause of Parker Creek Ranch. The Texas A&M Graduate is the owner of a holistic farm ranch located in D’Hanis, Texas. Krause practices regenerative holistic architecture, raising grass-fed beef, pasture-raised eggs, chicken, turkey, pork and even sells raw honey. The goal is to conserve natural resources and create nutritious and sustainable products.
Conscious of our ecological footprint, WestEast is proud to support local farm-to-market producers and local business owners by purchasing eggs and grass-fed beef from Parker Creek Ranch. Today we continue our wellness journey as we sample new food items and limit our impact on the environment all while creating a better holistic future for our continued wellness.
