Heights Happenings: March 28- April 3, 2013

Did Easter coming so early this year throw anyone else off? I am certainly ready for spring, though. Have an amazing weekend!

Thursday, March 28, 7 pm: Sunset Heights CC meeting with Plant It Forward
  • This month the SHCC has Kassy Rodriguez from Plant It Forward as their speaker. Ms Rodriguez is going to talk about the organization and how it works in the Heights area.

Each farm will have the potential to generate a fair wage for a family of four while providing premium brand sustainably-grown produce to Houstonians. Plant It Forward secures land, selects, trains, and mentors farmers and establishes each on their own urban micro-farm to sell under the Plant It Forward brand.

Some 45 years later, Faire as it is affectionately known, touches the lives of millions of people a year as attendees, booth owners, and die-hard "rennies".
