The Last Organic Outpost

Locally Grown, Chemically-Free Vegetables and Herbs from a non-profit volunteer run Farm and Art outpost in Houston's neglected east side. And everyone is welcome to join us!

The Emile Street Community Learning Farm produce is available for sale to the public, restaurants, co-ops and CSAs. The farm also hosts numerous events and is available for rent.

Along with running the Farm, 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.

The Last Organic Outpost is currently focusing it's efforts on the neglected 5th Ward food desert with the following objectives:

1) Outreach - Initiate the growth of Food Everywhere by building home gardens and a neighborhood wide orchard of fruit & nut trees in homes and public spaces. 2) Farming - Establish a local food economy by training farmers in non-conventional, but sustainable, environmentally sound methods, establish community farms and encourage farm and local food related businesses in the Fifth Ward. 3) Education - Host community events where we teach residents about healthy nutrition, urban agriculture, and sustainability.
