First Friday: Hope Farms Volunteer Day

In the heart of Houston's historic Sunnyside neighborhood, in view of downtown skyscrapers, in the midst of one of the city's largest food deserts. Our Hope Farm team will:

  • Train U.S. Veterans to become urban farmers, incubate their new micro farm businesses and provide them with coop marketing and distribution services to ensure their success;
  • Operate an on-site farm stand distributing produce to the neighborhood;
  • Provide jobs and internships for neighborhood youth;
  • Host field trips and Seed-to- Plate Nutrition Educationprograms for children and their families;
  • Operate the Rolling Green Market to deliver healthy, affordable produce to folks who need it most.
