Next Event - Saturday, Feb.13, 10am

Tour of Plant It Forward farm at 1318 Sul Ross Street near the University of St. Thomas Plant It Forward partners with several organizations to help refugees who settle here in Houston that come from farming backgrounds. They provide land, tools, and training (both farming and business assistance to help them sell their produce) for these refugees to become contributing citizens of Houston by growing fresh, locally grown food and then selling it through farmers markets, their farm stands, and other locales. Our tour guides will be Teresa O'Donnell, President of Plant-It-Forward, and Randi Rogers, Farm Share Program Manager. The University of St. Thomas location has a Farm Stand most Saturdays 10:00-2:00 so it also an opportunity to buy their fresh produce.
