ABOUT: Plant It Forward offers
economically disadvantaged refugees an opportunity to become self-sufficient through growing, harvesting and selling produce from a sustainable urban farm within the city of Houston. Each farm will have the potential to generate a fair wage for a family of four while providing premium brand sustainably-grown produce to Houstonians. Plant It Forward secures land, selects, trains, and mentors farmers and establishes each on their own urban farm to sell under the Plant It Forward brand.
FUN FACT: Our vision is a farm in every neighborhood, operated by people achieving the American Dream. PIF was incorporated in 2011 and now has seven farms and five acres under production.
