Kiss the Ground Screening October 12
We hosted a screening and “thought salon” at Hope Farms on Thursday, October 12 which was National Farmers Day. “Kiss the Ground” presents many of our organization’s core beliefs in an inspiring and thought provoking way. To help us increase awareness and drive change we wanted to ensure that our community, partners and civic leaders see it in a venue that exemplifies and magnifies the message. We enjoyed a robust dialog among several dozen viewers who enjoyed the entire showing. We envision this Film to Farm concept for a schedule of future documentary showing throughout the year.
Located in Sunnyyside, a historic Black Houston neighborhood, Hope Farms Urban Agricultural Showcase and Training Center is a critical initiative committed to increasing food security, providing nutrition education and growing a new generation of urban farmers in Houston, Texas. We foster regenerative, climate positive, pre-Industrial Age farming agricultural traditions and mentor new farmers. We offer hands-on, intensive courses and Master Classes of Gulf Coast horticulture and regular “thought” gatherings of trainees, alum, ag educators, community leaders, master farmers and chefs. Revitalizing inner-city neighborhoods, addressing community health, celebrating Houston’s diverse cultural heritage by generating broad understanding of critical sustainable local food shed issues and expanding the footprint of urban farms deploying regenerative agriculture in an environmentally forward fashion is central to Recipe for Success Foundation’s mission.
