Sow the seeds for a garden and you may be surprised at what grows alongside the vegetables and fruits. Little minds sprout and flourish. Friendships blossom. Communities thrive. Harvest the garden and it nourishes the body and mind, provides revenue, and instills respect for a greener, sustainable environment.
From this simple concept grew Urban Harvest, a nonprofit organization with three hardworking programs at its core: Community Gardens, gardening and youth Education, and Farmers Markets. Urban Harvest inspires and empowers people of diverse backgrounds to grow and share healthy foods, in the process enriching the city we all call home.
The Urban Harvest Farmers Markets bring the bounty of the garden to Houstonians several times a week year round, rain or shine. Growers offer locally produced vegetables, fruits, farm products, dairy products, prepared foods, cut flowers and plants. Our colorful markets support a number of family farms and boost the income of small growers from the area. Even school groups, community gardeners and backyard gardeners have the opportunity to sell their products and learn about market gardening with the Houston Regional Market Growers Co-op.
