This sale may be the largest one-day fruit tree sale on the planet! It provides high quality fruit trees for individuals, schools, community gardens, farms, and other agencies over much of Southeast Texas. It popularizes and publicizes the growing of fruit trees and provides education about what works here and what doesn’t. Fruit trees have many advantages for the grower: improved diet, cheaper organic and tasty food, low-labor food production, carbon sequestration, erosion control, shade, and beauty. At the same time, the sale raises at minimum $50,000 for Urban Harvest’s many valuable programs: Youth Education, Farmers’ Markets, Community Gardens, and Adult Classes in gardening and sustainability.
