I heard about a local farm share group called Plant It Forward from one of the weekly newsletters put out by the Houston-based blog, Big Kids Small City. (They have gathered an amazing list of kid-friendly events and places in Houston.)
The farm share concept sounded really neat; one of their taglines is “Urban farms for Houston, Small businesses for refugees.” The produce is non-GMO, chemical free, and grown right here in Houston by recently transplanted refugees. It’s then delivered to a local farmers market once a week for pick up.
They don’t tell you in advance what you’re getting each week, since it depends on what’s ready to be harvested. It’s a vegetable adventure!
