Hope Farms is a 7.5-acre urban farm dedicated to improving community health by providing direct access to healthy and affordable fresh fruits and vegetables.
Located in the Sunnyside neighborhood of Houston, Texas, the farm will serve as a valuable resource for local residents and the city at large by providing access to fresh produce, nutrition education programs and job training for military veterans.
In operation since December 2016, Hope Farms serves as a complementary and critical layer to expand Recipe for Success Foundation’s mission and address community health in a powerful and new way. The farm uses intensive, organic methods to generate significant food crops in the midst of one of Houston’s recognized “food deserts.” Incorporating the Rolling Green Market and the Veteran Farmer Training program, Hope Farms is the foundation of the future Hope Farms Co-op that will facilitate, promote and support a network of small urban growers to serve the broader market.
