The Harris County BUILD Health Partnership

Pasadena Health Initative Awarded $250,000.

The central goal of North Pasadena’s Sustainable Food System initiative is develop a community-supported food system in order to eliminate conditions that lead to limited or uncertain access to adequate food, known as food insecurity.

Part of the project would include Phase One Vertical farm facility intended to serve dual roles, with an indoor Harvest using the facility as a demonstration farm and R&D facility and Harris County Build Partnership, a non-profit group, using the facility for education and charitable purposes.

It is anticipated the the crops grown will be donated, or sold at cost, to provide fresh produce to low income families in North Pasadena area.
