Farming Wonders in Richmond, Texas

Saturday, March 24. | Details to be announced.

How do young farmers bring their experience, self-education and dreams to Texas to build a large organic farm in an urban area? Scott Snodgrass has been active in promoting native and organic planting for a decade. He cofounded the Edible Group, an umbrella corporation for a variety of small businesses dedicated to the production and consumption of fresh, sustainable foods through farming and education.  One of these businesses, Loam Agronomics was established  two years ago with the purchase of 288 acres of farmland in Richmond. He and his management team have hired and trained farmers to plant and harvest crops that are sold through CSA (community supported agriculture) subscriptions and regional farmers’ markets.

Snodgrass will take us on a journey beginning with a tour of a farm-centered home development, Harvest Green, and a Farmers’ Market in Richmond. From there, we will head to the Loam Agronomics property for a tour of the large farm learning about the techniques, equipment, innovation, joys and travails of organic farming in the Houston area. Our study tour will be topped off by a chef-prepared lunch featuring vegetables just harvested from the farm.
