Urban Harvest offers year-round adult gardening education classes, in addition to an extensive Youth Education program. Gardening and nutrition education for youth is vital to cultivating healthy kids and healthy communities. We offer advice, education, and services to provide parents, teachers, and administrators with information to build and maintain a successful and sustainable school garden program.
We offer 50+ gardening classes around Houston each year. Subjects range from caring for fruit trees to Certification Courses in permaculture and growing organically. From classrooms to garden sites, there are no age limits when it comes to learning. Want to become a garden educator, join our Edible Academy.
Urban Harvest also has school partnerships to develop outdoor classrooms including programming with an Urban Harvest garden educator and project management. Garden education programs are delivered after school or during school to enrich curriculum. Standard subjects include social studies, math, science and language arts. In addition, we explore nutrition, food systems and native habitats and ecosystems at elementary and middle schools in the Houston and Spring Branch ISDs.
