Mission Statement

Urban Harvest is a nonprofit organization that uses fruit, vegetable and habitat gardens to improve quality of life in the greater Houston area. These gardens serve to educate, strengthen community spirit, create therapeutic environments and provide food and income. We teach organic gardening techniques, help neighborhoods build successful community gardens,create outdoor classrooms at schools that teach core curricula, nutrition and respect for the environment, provide fresh, locally grown food, and encourage responsible land use. Our work benefits all of us by improving food, diet and health. It also builds engaging schools, neighborly communities, and valuable local businesses that together sustain and improve our environment.

Description

We help start community and school gardens in greater Houston. We offer gardening classes and manage a farmer's market. We have a curriculum program in low income schools to teach science and math in outdoor classrooms. We teach places of worship and neighborhood groups how to grow food to donate to the hungry.
