Cultivating successful gardeners.

 

From choosing the right variety of tomato to controlling pests, the knowledge Urban Harvest staff and volunteers have accumulated over the years can benefit area growers and improve harvests. We offer advice in a variety of ways. Gardening classes are offered year-round on an extensive list of topics. Books, including Dr. Bob Randall's Year Round Vegetables, Fruits and Flowers for Metro Houston, are available at our offices.

[Subjects are updated periodically based on new information and timeliness.]
