CoreNet Houston Helps Turn Last Organic Outpost Into Educational Farm
More than 50 CoreNet Houston members shed their ties and heels, grabbed some work boots and pitchforks, and donated their Saturday to make meaningful improvements to the Last Organic Outpost, a resource for locally grown food and an educational hub for schools in Houston's fifth ward. The project was a continuation of work CoreNet started last year.
Last Organic Outpost is now the only officially recognized educational farm in Houston. Just four days after the project, nearly 150 first- and second-graders from Mark Twain Elementary spent their morning learning about sustainable farming, produce and healthy eating.
