Beauty’s Community Garden big upcoming fundraiser event: Beauty’s Community Garden Peace Through P.I.E. Contest

Somewhere Beauty is looking down, smiling at this grassroots project that focuses on delivering fresh farm-to-table produce to neighbors and beyond. Gardening education and demos will hopefully include a free Pollinator Class in February, in conjunction with one of their biggest supporters, Memorial Hermann Greater Heights Hospital. Statistics record the Greater Heights area to lead in chronic illnesses that can be related to diet.
Beauty’s Garden has teamed with Memorial Hermann and PEACE through P.I.E. to help provide the vegetable gardening know-how and nutrition education to this “Food Desert” community. In Houston’s multiple “Food Deserts” fresh fruits and vegetables are not readily available because many grocery stores prefer to locate only where incomes are higher. (For more, google “Houston Food Deserts.”)


Beauty’s Garden volunteers can be found working, and meeting guests, Mondays and Saturdays 9:30-11: 30 am. Children accompanied by parents or guardians are welcome.  More volunteers are always needed and should register at memorialhermann.org/heights-community-garden.  More information is available at Facebook.com/beautys-community-garden.
