For 25 years, Urban Harvest has been enriching the lives, soils, and plates of Houstonians.
Since 1994, Urban Harvest has changed the way Houston thinks about food, revealing that sustainable fruits and vegetables can flourish in Houston’s unique climate. What’s more, locally-grown, healthy food can revitalize and empower our communities and region.
Today, through our generous supporters, our programs continue to champion this philosophy.
Our Community Gardens program provides resources and education to over 135 gardens, supporting communities in growing their own food and creating sustainable greenspaces.
Our Youth Education program teaches hands-on gardening to Houston-area students, and with our Edible Academy workshop for educators, we reach 7,000 students annually.
Our Farmers Markets bring together farmers, vendors, and thousands of Houstonians in a lively community that celebrates local food and growers.
