Families searching for outdoor, festive fun need look no further than Hope Farms, Recipe for Success Foundation’s urban-farm project in Sunnyside.


On Saturday, Oct. 24 and Saturday, Oct. 31, the beautiful property will boast fab fall backdrops — vignettes of pumpkins, hay bales and even an antique tractor — in front of which families can snap their own pics. Time slots are available between 9:15am and 12:45pm on both days. After the shoot, folks can check out the selection of farm-fresh produce — or pick up orders they’ve placed online.

Throughout the Covid crisis, Hope Farms has continued to harvest its seasonal, all-organic fare. Its weekly food-share package — delivered to doorsteps on Tuesdays, with about a dozen varieties of veggies, fruits and herbs — has become more popular than ever. It’s also expanded to offer virtual cooking classes and other small-group experiences. “We continue to celebrate the power of a shared meal to build memories,” says Cavnar, “and empower parents to feed our children healthy food.”

HOW DID YOU come together as a team? This fall, we are celebrating the introduction of an exciting real estate collaboration between Clare Leppert, longtime Houston Realtor®, and daughter Leigh Leppert. Clare shared a 20+ year real estate partnership with her mother, Bette Carpenter, until Bette’s death in 2016. Having worked solo for several years, Clare in 2021 was awarded Houston Business Journal’s No. 2 Luxury Realtor® in Houston. Leigh, who has been working in marketing for the past decade, has always shared a passion for real estate and watched Clare successfully balance family and career. We are excited to re-create the next generation of a mother-daughter duo at Compass!

Wiley's 'Judith and Holofernes'

THE ENERGY IN the foyer of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston’s Caroline Wiess Law Building is quite lively, thanks to the installation of two provocative paintings, painted 400 years apart — one by Artemisia Gentileschi, an Italian 17th-century female artist, the other by Kehinde Wiley, a contemporary, Nigerian-born queer Black artist. Each depicts the grisly climax in the Old Testament Book of Judith, in which the widow Judith decapitates the Assyrian general Holofernes, thus saving her besieged Jewish city of Betulia.
