During these unprecedented times, Urban Harvest is committed to doing our part to ensure everyone stays healthy, active, and fed. We’re here to support you. This means adapting our programs to fit the growing needs of our neighbors and community members – keeping our organization running to bolster not only local farms and gardens, but also all Houstonians. We know: Access to fresh, healthy food and safe, outdoor greenspace has never been more important.
Today, your support is also crucial. As we continue to provide resources, education, and food to those who need it most, we simply can’t do it alone. Please: Help Urban Harvest “Grow Resilience,” and donate during this critical moment. A gift at any level makes a difference, enabling Urban Harvest to support our staff and fulfill our mission: to cultivate thriving communities through gardening and access to healthy, local food.
Grow Resilience with Urban Harvest:
Social distancing doesn’t mean we have to be disconnected
Saturday Farmers Market
With the guidance of local, state, and federal officials, our Saturday Farmers Market will remain open – with new safety regulations, health measures, and a drive thru service for online pre-orders. The market provides vital support to some of our most hard-hit regional farms and small businesses, while offering one of the safest methods for the community to access food.
Continue to Support Our Local Farms and Small Businesses
Our vendors are resilient – and are creating new pathways to access their fresh, healthy products through curbside pickup, home and satellite deliveries, Farmshares and CSAs, and more. Learn about how you can continue to support our vendors, and enjoy their local products.
Urban Harvest is moving our gardening resources online: providing virtual classes, basic gardening videos, kids activities, and more. Also, follow our simple recipes to cook “farm to table” – using your garden goodies to make fresh, healthy meals at home.
