Discover the Farm
We have over 10 bee hives at the rear of the farm donated and managed by the good folks at HIVE Bee. Cyrus and Sandi are the most charming of Bee Charmers and give their time to educate our farmers and fans about these busy pollinators.
Partially to inspire us all with the possibilities in our own kitchen gardens and partially to trial new kinds of veggies for members of our Chef Brigade, this abundant space is open every day for your exploration and often plays host to intimate soireés.
Our bold rooster and his colorful ladies reside in their spacious coop built for us by Garden Hen. They love visitors who might feed them some greens.
Designed to inspire kids to get in touch with the garden, this large space boasts pollinator plantings and a rainbow garden along with themed veggie beds, like Salsa and Pizza. Kids are invited to crawl through the hoolahoop tunnel, climb our tire mountain or just play in the sand. Classes, parties and lots of independent fun regularly erupt inside the white picket fence.
Twenty-two raised planting beds are available to our neighbors who are interested in growing their own food. Our Gardens Manager is on hand to advise and inspire members to achieve great results throughout the seasons. We aspire to make Hope Farms Community Garden an integral part of the Sunnyside neighborhood, hosting events which center around gardening and community wellness programs that focus on bringing people together. Beds are limited to one per household; to get you started with a bed rental, please contact
In collaboration with Harris County Precinct One Commissioner, Rodney Ellis, we are designing and building a pathway around the farm for our neighbors and friends to use as part of a exercise routine. At its completion, it will be one inspiring mile, winding through our orchards and fields, along Sims Bayou, by the chicken coop, Children’s Garden and Chefs Kitchen Garden. Everyone is welcome to come walk the farm.
Dedicated to an early supporter of Recipe for Success Foundation who shared the vision for Hope Farms—Mickey Rosmarin, this alley of fruit trees runs from our entrance south along the Scott Street side of the farm. It’s a delicious start to the Farm Walk.
This iconic open-air building sitting at the heart of our farm is the site of our shared meals and harvest celebrations, Saturday morning yoga, the First Wednesday Markets and Earth Day along with field trips, cooking classes and so many other lovely gatherings. An impressive 35’x120’, the generously sized UnitedHealth Foundation Gathering Barn plays host to many events—ours and yours.
Pollinators are critical to the healthy operation of a farm. And thanks to generous support of The Houston Garden Club and The River Oaks Garden Club, we have two major installations. The largest garden of colorful annual flowers sits between our two driveway entrances and measures 25×150 feet. Additional 8’x15’ beds flank the entrance to our Chefs Kitchen Garden. Thanks to a gift from an anonymous donor these gardens as well as our Perennial Pathways through the fields are being restored by Houston area Scout groups. Come be inspired for how you can create a robust habitat in your own garden.
