Earth Day Festival
returns this year after having been suspended due to COVID. Join us April 6, 2022, during our First Wednesday Market from 4:00-7:00, when we will offer a full schedule of events–from cooking and gardening classes to yoga and a haiku poem writing contest. Our S.P.I.C.E. booths will feature art creation and games for all ages, alongside a market showcasing fresh produce, products and crafts by Houston makers, local food and beverages–all designed to put the whole family in touch with our farm in the middle of the city.
We are excited to unveil our brand new Rainwater Capture System underwritten by The Green Mountain Energy Sun Club. This state-of-the-art installation designed and built by Stirling Electric and Irrigation will redirect 95,000 gallons of rainwater that our Gathering Barn roof sheds each year to our irrigation, and plumbing systems.
95,000 gallons of water = 6,333 bottles of water; or 20 full tanker trucks; or nearly a year’s worth of water for the average American Family.
