Join hosts Emma Claire, Avery and Isla Cunningham to celebrate the Mexican feast day for Day of the Dead by learning about the traditional food and flowers that are so closely associated with it. Mother Nature is a powerful partner in our garden.  We will harvest, taste and plant edible flowers and herbs, make crowns and garlands of marigolds and learn how to make tamales.

Join Us For a Feast

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.

Space is limited. Secure your place now.


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 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.
