Hey there, community champions!
In the vibrant core of Northeast Houston, a unique blend of community unity, enthusiasm, and innovation came alive. Our recent Northeast Community Farmers Market marked its 4th year, epitomizing a true community festivity.
Key players like UISC, LBJ Hospital, Northeast Houston Redevelopment Council, and Urban Harvest were in attendance, underscoring the depth of collaborative spirit that defines our community. Alongside them, numerous vendors presented a myriad of offerings, from health-centric stations like blood pressure tests and mammograms to engaging activities such as voter registration, fire truck displays, lively music, and you can't forget the food truck.
UISC unveiled drones as part of the upcoming Drone Education Program, an initiative rooted in STEAM, aiming to ignite young BIPOC minds with the wonders of drone technology and its manifold applications.
But the day was more than festivities; it symbolized the essence of community unity. The Northeast Houston Redevelopment Council's efforts shone brightly, highlighting their pivotal role in birthing and nurturing community initiatives, especially the farmers market. Their journey, from kickstarting it at a local elementary school to partnering with LBJ Hospital, reflects their dedication to the community. Their efforts were rightfully recognized as Council Member Tarsha Jackson presented NEHRC with a Certificate of Appreciation, celebrating four years of relentless effort towards grassroots upliftment and championing healthy food access.
For all of us who contribute to and cherish our community, this event filled our hearts with pride and gratitude. Here's to more years of unity, growth, and flourishing together!
