2020 was a busy year for the Urban Garden Project.
While food supply chain concerns rocked the country, our small group of home gardeners set out to make a difference in our community.
We saw a demand by new budding gardeners for safe, heirloom seeds and pooled together our resources to create a seed share network.
Since our inception, we have worked tirelessly to aid our community to gain the knowledge they need to secure a food supply for their families. We are proud of the work we have done. But we're not resting on our laurels. We have moved this grassroots project to the next level.
We have created a seed bank and will continue to add to it in the coming years.
We have continued the practice of seed sharing and donate seeds to Houston area gardeners in food deserts.
Lastly, we have developed partnerships with small family owned seed farms to create a seed store to fund our projects.
Our seeds are packaged in the perfect sizes for home gardeners and we are distributing them at a low cost to continue our mission to make gardening accessible.
It is imperative that we work together to fight the epidemic of food insecurity and we welcome you to join us on our journey.
