School Partnerships

 

Since 2003, Urban Harvest has provided Youth Education garden and nutrition classes to explore healthy nutrition, food systems, native habitats and ecosystems at Houston-area schools. Some programs are funded by after school grants while others are supported by parent groups, community groups and even local business partners.
