The Earth Day 2022 theme is 'Invest In Our Planet'.
WHEN: Saturday, April 23, 2022
WHERE: At Beauty's Community Garden
3201 Airline Dr. Houston, TX 77022
ADMISSION: Limited Space
It's free, but RSVP - coming soon
Beauty's Community Garden will start Earth Day by hearing from Keith Koski, manager of Reuse Warehouse Houston. Keith will help us understand how we can contribute to the tons of waste material that Reuse Houston has kept from landfills by repurposing old materials from construction sites, office renovations and home remodeling projects.
We will host CAMP (Caring Aggies Mentoring Program) an organization providing new experiences to children ranging from 3rd grade to senior high school.
In addition, The Mission Continues, a veterans volunteer group will also be on hand as we all work together to give a facelift to an old railway storage container the garden uses for our tool shed. Thank you to The Mission Continues for help with the paint prep work and CAMP for donating the container.
The youth will start to create their artistic vision that will be adapted for the container's makeover.
Earth day ending with garden to table eats.
Sowing & Reaping
Our Sustainable Urban Farming Program
Beauty's Community Garden's Sowing & Reaping program focuses on the fundamentals of sustainable urban farming while sharing resources with aspiring gardeners. Starting with the complex, underground world of soil, we focus on nurturing plants with an ecological approach. At Beauty’s Community Garden, we don’t just grow food, we cultivate biodiversity, protect our precious resources, and nourish the earth that feeds us. The garden is an ecosystem, and as farmers, it is our job to learn and practice our role within it. Whether you volunteer or sign up for a gardening class, you'll get hands-on experience and grow with us!
- Best plant variety for Houston's climate
- Propagating methods of seeds, transplants, and cuttings
- Soil and bed preparation
- Horticultural practices such as pruning and harvesting
- Ecological pest management
- Vegetable fruit, and herb production
Two ways to get your hands in the dirt!
Tending the Garden
Tending the Garden
Tending the Garden is our year-round volunteer at the garden program - usually on Saturdays. Volunteers are at the heart of what we do, and it takes each and every hand to successfully care for the plants through the seasons. Beauty's Community Garden doesn't rent out our plots, we instead share with anyone who tends the soil with us. The garden is located at, 3201 Airline Drive, Houston, TX. As an Urban Harvest Affiliate Garden we use their VOMO platform for all Saturday and special garden event volunteer signups. Check out the volunteer button below to signup for a volunteer Saturday.
Before signing up to volunteer, make sure you review on our portal the...
- listing of all open volunteer dates, and the number of volunteers needed
- details about what you should bring for your safety and care, and what you'll be provided
- listing of release and liability forms that are required to volunteer
Quarterly + Dates/Times TBD
Garden Workshops are our specialty programs hosted, quarterly, on Saturdays at the Garden, located at 3201 Airline Drive, Houston, TX. The program times are based on each workshop's focus, and will be determined per event. Each workshop event has a dedicated Eventbrite event page for signup, and will be shared throughout social media.
The Garden Workshops generally are free and open to those who sign up. We do however, provide an opportunity to donate, to support our programming.
Each Garden Workshop program has limited space. Note: We prepare and provide materials for each participant. Many of the workshops provide plants and product to be sent home with you. With that in mind, please be considerate when taking a place and signing up.
There are lots of ways to support our Garden Workshops. Consider being a volunteer, sponsor, partner, a special topic instructor, or even consider donating to the program.
A program is only as good as the impact people feel in their lives. Impact is energy in action. Through our Sowing & Reaping program we are committed to tracking your feedback and making sure your numbers are counted.
