Chandra E. Miller – The Get It Growin’ Garden

Date grant awarded: August 21, 2018

The Get It Growin’ Community Garden is a neighborhood non-profit organization founded by long-time Texas resident, Chandra Miller. The goal of Get it Growin’ is to build a bridge to connect neighbors in the community through the fellowship of organic gardening, healthier lifestyles, team work, and education. By utilizing abandoned lots leased through the city of Houston, they will be able to lease garden plots to residents to grow and harvest their own organic gardens.

Garden to Table cooking classes, organic gardening education, rain harvesting and educational children series are some of the many ways Get It Growin’ will connect with their neighbors, build a more unified community, and build healthier lifestyles that are more closely connected to nature.
