18th Annual Fruit Tree Sale @ Houston Community College West Loop Parking Lot
Jan 13 @ 9:00 am – 1:00 pm

Urban Harvest’s 18th Annual Fruit Tree Sale will be on Saturday Jan 13, 2018, at the Houston Community College West Loop Parking Lot, 5601 West Loop S, Houston, TX 77081, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm (or until we sell out). Details are being added at
http://urbanharvest.org/fruit-tree-sale.

If you are interested in volunteering, fill out the volunteer form at http://urbanharvest.org/fts/volunteer. Volunteer manager Scott Howard (scott.urbanharvest.fts@gmail.com) will contact you about volunteer positions, responsibilities, date and time period(s) you want to work and who you will report to. Volunteers will also be given access to our pre-order website to select and order your personal fruit trees in advance of the sale.

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’ MarketsCommunity Gardens, and Adult Classes in gardening and sustainability.
