Join Us for Free, Fun Experiences on the Farm!

 

Texas Health Community Hope is planting the seeds for a healthier community by creating opportunities to learn directly from local urban farmers! The Locally Grown Farm Experience series features hands-on activities at local farms around North Texas. Join us for an afternoon "on the farm" and learn from urban farmers firsthand, gain growing tips, and discover how we can all support local farmers in their efforts to enhance community well-being.

From container gardening to the ins and outs of going to market to preparing fresh produce, you’ll find plenty of ways to get your hands dirty and grow your knowledge of our local efforts. All experiences are FREE but advanced registration is required. Note, some events have age restrictions. Space is limited so sign up today.
