Earth Day with Big City Gardener!

In honor of Earth Day, TWST4Girls will expose our youth to the world of conservation and the importance of sustainable living!

We welcome “Big City Gardener” Timothy Hammond to teach our TWST Kids how to plant their very own garden! We will exercise our green thumb while planting fruits, vegetables, learning about soil, environment and gardening tools!

Big City Gardener

Timothy has a double major in Finance and Economics from the University of Houston. After being part of multiple successful business ventures, the entrepreneur decided to do something completely different; follow his passion for gardening.

The urban farmer has joined the City of Houston’s Youth Violence Prevention Coalition with the Houston Health department. As a Sub Committee leader he looks to use his gardening knowledge to help find ways to provide the youth opportunities through urban agriculture.

Timothy volunteers his time, knowledge and farm space to spread the importance of knowing and understanding where your produce comes from and self sufficiency.

By the end of this workshop, our girls will have a starter garden, as well as the knowledge, tools and skills to create their very own garden at their homes and in their communities!
