Gardening Resources

These are a few resources for gardening, community gardens, and more. If you'd like to add any, send them over and we'll include in the next email!

  • ATSDR soilSHOP Toolkit | The name soilSHOP stands for Soil Screening, Health, Outreach and Partnership. ATSDR developed this toolkit to help communities and other groups plan their own soilSHOP events. This resource guides groups in how to learn if their soil is contaminated with lead and how to reduce exposures to contaminated soil and produce.

  • Finca Tres Robles @ 257 N Greenwood Street | The East End's only private, organic farm! Their farmstand is open every Wednesday and Saturday, with farm shares available for fall beginning September 1.

  • Urban Harvest | 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 by hosting workshops, their farmer’s markets, supporting community gardens, and championing gardening and youth education.

  • Buchanan's Native Plants "Houston Gardening By Month" | This quick reference helps you plan out what tasks need to be done in your garden every month, but specific to Houston's unique weather.
