For homeschools and organizations with 1-6 students located in Harris County, registration AND pick up of supplies can be done at the same time on the date below. This approach has proven to better serve families and groups with smaller numbers of students. In the past, we have had a large percent of our registered homeschools never pick up their supplies.

Remember, the only cost to you for cylinder gardening is the potting soil and container. In the spirit of the 3 R’s, please reuse cylinders from previous years. Seeds, fertilizer and cylinders will be available. If you have questions while planting or growing your vegetables with your children, you can email your questions to cg.HarrisHort@gmail.com .
