Organizer Plant It Forward

Organizer of Plant It Forward Community Work Day – Fondren Farm

Plant It Forward (PIF) is Houston’s largest network of urban farms. We work with independent, professional farmers who are New Americans. We distribute fresh produce throughout our community via weekly Farm Shares, Farmers Markets, and chef & wholesale customers.

As a non-profit organization, we provide targeted services to farm businesses operating in the PIF network, including access to land, agricultural and business mentorship, and access to fair markets/sales opportunities/customer base. Our Food Hub provides critical marketing services that grow the viability of small farm businesses in Houston.
