    Urban Harvest 2013 Annual Fruit Tree Sale

    Funds raised by this sale go directly to the many vital Urban Harvest programs, including outdoor classrooms at schools, donation gardens supplying fresh food to soup kitchens and food pantries, and the many organic gardening classes offered so inexpensively by Urban Harvest and its talented and knowledgeable staff. It also helps fund the Urban Harvest Farmers Markets where local growers bring their produce to sell.

    The sale itself helps to make Houston a greener place to live.
