Urban Harvest Grow Resilience - Urban Harvest School Garden Guide

Updated in 2019, the Urban Harvest School Gardening Guide provides teachers, parents and garden educators with resources to help teach children about organic vegetable gardening. It focuses on how to grow and teach about many “highly-likely-to-succeed” vegetables in the Greater Houston area and why these are important plants to us scientifically and culturally.The vegetables covered in this guide were included based on their proven ease of growing, as well as their ability to serve as educational tools.

With over 30 years of combined school garden education experience, Irene Nava (left) and Carol Burton (right) regularly share their knowledge of teaching students at workshops, garden demonstrations and through this updated Guide.
