There are some amazing service sites that we will serve with this Summer in Houston. Last Organic Outpost is one of them. They are an urban farm that allows community members access to organic fresh food.
The Last Organic Outpost generates healthy communities and establishes a local food economy in Houston’s under-served neighborhoods through urban farming and farm-based art & education. We empower communities through sustainable agriculture that teaches residents to produce safe, healthy and accessible food for all. We envision growing ‘Food Everywhere’ and seeding an Urban Agricultural District that cultivates our region’s food and supports local farmers to thrive despite economic, environmental, health and social challenges.

Here are some photos from our 2015 Spring Break!
The daughter of missionaries, I was raised in East Africa where we lived until I was 14. Just before beginning high school, we moved to Germany where I spent the next four years of my life. Upon graduation, I joined a program called Mission Year — a year-long urban missions program that works in various cities across the United States. Mission Year placed me in Houston, where I had the opportunity to work with and learn from wonderful people and organizations. Now I am 21 years old and have just finished my second year at Houston Community College. In the fall I will transfer to the University of Houston where I will study Creative Writing. My goal is to find ways of integrating my passion for writing and other forms of creativity with my passion for people and loving them as Christ calls us to do.
I am originally from Pompano Beach, Fla., and am a graduate of Prairie View A&M University, where I received my bachelor’s degree in construction science. I am currently working on my master’s degree in community development. My goal is to one day start my own non-profit organization geared towards helping youth and homeless individuals.
