Urban Harvest Cultivates Fun with New Membership Group, Kickoff Party

Lauren Paine, Abigail Henningsen

DEDICATED TO FURTHERING the mission of Urban Harvest, a new group called Cultivators has formed, made up of entrepreneurs, artists, chefs, educators, farmers and more. Founding committee welcomed patrons and curious supporters-to-be to Christopher Martin Gallery for a cocktail party.


Founded in 1994, Urban Harvest aims to ensure that local communities have access to healthy food, through gardening, farmers markets, a mobile food bank and other initiatives. The new Cultivators group will host events and volunteer their time and talents to help the nonprofit achieve its goals.

At the kickoff, representatives from the gallery offered tips to help partygoers get their art collection going, just as Urban Harvest educators gave pointers about gardening. And the organization's Mobile Market was on-site, demonstrating how it brings fresh produce to inner-city communities that lack access; importantly, SNAP recipients can shop at the Mobile Market, and Urban Harvest doubles what those patrons can receive with their SNAP benefits.

Chef German Mosquera and mixologist Joseph Seahorn provided seasonal refreshments, and Christopher Martin Gallery donated a portion of proceeds from the evening's art sales to Urban Harvest.

Boutique Midrise Adds To Pedestrian Appeal Of Sought-After, Inner Loop Neighborhood

WITH ITS INAUGURAL set of residents newly moved in, Pelican Builders’ mid-rise condominium Westmore at 2323 W Main Street in Upper Kirby is already seeing the blossoming of a tight-knit community. Designed by Houston-based Mirador Group the Westmore is the first new condominium product to be introduced to the in-demand, inner loop neighborhood in more than three years. And with remaining two-bedroom homes starting at $895,000, it’s a remarkable value for this increasingly pricey area, where condos can easily climb to several million dollars and more.
