All About Central City Co-Op

In September 2001, Jennifer Georgantas and Pat Greer dreamed of a community of people joining together each week around healthy, earth-friendly food. This dream became a reality 15 years ago with the founding of Central City Co-Op, Houston’s very first organic co-op.

Organic Produce, Organic Community
Our mission is to support sustainable, chemical free farming practices through offering both 1) sustainably raised local and 2) certified USDA organic national produce and farm goods to our community at the fairest prices possible.

Everything we carry on our shelves and stock in our shares is either locally, sustainably grown by farmers we know or is nationally-certified USDA organic. Both are great options for you and for our planet!

Central City Co-Op also provides a space for individuals to come together as a community. We support every member of our community in their journey to learn more about where their food comes from, how it’s produced, and how the local economy is impacted by food choices.

In short, we make our best effort to feature produce from local sources that embrace compassionate and chemical-free growing—and the little that isn’t local is still nationally-certified USDA organic. We believe everyone should have access to organic produce at reasonable prices.

Visit us in every Wednesday inside Kindred Church at 2515 Waugh Drive. Take a tour with a volunteer to see us first hand!

Shop with us in our open market on Wednesday, or pre-order a share on our online store (by 6 pm Sundays for Wednesday pickup).

Non-members can pre-order their first share in person on Wednesday with the members-only 10% discount (one time only). After that, individuals must become a member to receive the discount.

Nature Discovery Center’s Tree ID Walk @ Nature Center front porch
Dec 2 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

logo

We meet on the Nature Center front porch.

Fall is a great time to learn more about trees! Some may even put on a colorful display as the season progresses. Jim McKee, a Master Naturalist, tree lover, and bird watcher will be leading more walks in the park this fall to teach us how to identify the trees that live here in Russ Pitman Park. Jim shares lots of interesting historical and biological facts about the many species of trees we have in Russ Pitman Park as well as how to identify them. You are welcome to come to one or all!

This is a FREE, drop-in program. No registration required.
