We dig Houston.


Sow the seeds for a garden and you may be surprised at what grows alongside the vegetables and fruits. Little minds sprout and flourish. Friendships blossom. Communities thrive. Harvest the garden and it nourishes the body and mind, provides revenue, and instills respect for a greener, sustainable environment.

From this simple concept grew Urban Harvest, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization with three hardworking programs at its core: Community Gardens, gardening and youth Education, and Farmers Markets. Urban Harvest inspires and empowers people of diverse backgrounds to grow and share healthy foods, in the process enriching the city we all call home.

Urban Harvest to lead new SNAP Incentive Program! 
Urban Harvest will implement Double Up Houston, a regional SNAP incentive program at 19 participating farmers markets and farm stands across the Houston area. 
How it works: When shoppers spend their SNAP benefits at participating farmers markets, they receive a dollar-for-dollar match up to $20 a day that they can spend on local produce, so they can bring home $40 worth of healthy food for just $20.
