We are having a PoLlinator Party!
October 15, 2022 from 1:30-2:30
Join hosts Vivienne and Elizabeth McMullen to honor Indigenous People’s Day by learning about pollinators. Mother Nature is a powerful partner in our garden. Let’s learn to work with her. We will plant a pollinator garden to support butterflies, bees, and birds in sync with the rhythm of the seasons and wildlife migratory patterns and to understand how they all work together to generate our food. We will harvest, taste and plant edible flowers and herbs. (Children 7-12 may attend alone and parents are encouraged to accompany their 5 & 6 year old children.) RESERVE YOUR SPOT
DELICIOUS ALCHEMY BANQUET
NOVEMBER 13, 2023 at 7:00 in the evening
We have long celebrated gathering around a beautiful table for a meal among friends, the hallmark of our Delicious Alchemy Banquet, which is limited to just 80 guests. As Houston’s torrid summer melts into a beautiful autumn and the feasting season begins, there is no better place to congregate than our bucolic Hope Farms in the heart of the city.
We will gather on Monday, November 13 for our spectacular Delicious Alchemy Banquet featuring ten exquisite courses celebrating Houston’s rich culinary diversity, crafted by ten extraordinary chefs, in a glorious pastoral setting—or as the Chronicle says, “the ultimate dinner party.” We hope you will be there.
THROW YOUR OWN PARTY AT HOPE FARMS
We would be honored to help you throw a very special private party using our charming farm as your perfect venue. Our location is especially convenient for your guests, since we are just two miles south of Loop 610 in the heart of Houston.

We enjoy inviting everyone-residents, neighbors and tourists, to join our table and share your stories to spin the threads that connect generations, weaving the fabric of family and community.
SEASONAL FARM WALKS
We thank our annual fund supporters and donors with a unique opportunity to enjoy the farm. Please consider making your contribution today and stay tuned for your invitation to join us. Beginning with a reception, featuring craft cocktails from Tito’s Handmade Vodka, we embark on a tour with our farm team to connect to the seasonal rhythms and learn about what we have been up to lately, including a visit with the chickens. At sunset we return to the barn to enjoy farm-fresh hors d’oeuvres with wines to match. These invitation-only events are reserved for our generous annual fund donors.
