Every Saturday from 9 to 1, rain or shine. Bring your family and learn how you can get your hands on local produce!www.plant-it-forward.org.

Plant It Forward Farms provides fresh, seasonal produce for Houston. All of our food is free of chemical pesticides and is freshly picked for sale at local farmers markets. We offer the fruits and vegetables that you grew up with, as well as our farmers favorite produce from their homelands around. the world.

One of the most important ways that you can support Plant It Forward Farms is to buy our produce. Not only does it support hard working refugee farmers, our local economy, and the creation of green space in Houston; you are also buying some of the freshest fruits and vegetables in the city, all grown without the use of chemicals or GMOs.

Our farmers are selling at Urban Harvests EastsideFarmers Market, throughFarm Share subscriptions, atfarm stands, and tochefsthrough the Houston area.


Urban farms for Houstonpartners with social and religious groups to provide land and tools to refugees who settle in Houston with few other skills besides farming. Refugees receive a years training at a model farm, as well as additional business assistance to help sell their produce through farmers markets, farm stands, farm shares and restaurant sales. A portion of each success helps provide opportunities for future refugees, and our replicable model can easily be scaled to support hundreds of urban farms throughout the city and beyond. ThroughPlant It Forward Farms, refugees can become active and contributing citizens that help Houston realize its potential as a leader in sustainable living.

The goal for Novembers collections is to purchase a tiller, to help the farmers prepare the gardens for winter crops.

Kassy Rodriguez, Farm Share Manager will share whats happening at the farms this fall and how to buy a share of the produce. A tour of the farms is planned for November 15, and we hope to participate in a work day at one of the farms.

To learn more about the farmers and farms, seewww.plant-it-forward.org or stop by the Saturday morning Farmers Market on Eastside.
