Funds Help Local Farmers Recover

Our club was blessed to receive donations from clubs all over the US to help victims of Harvey.  Part of the funds went to assist Plant It Forward, an organization (founded by a woman from Southside Place) that helps immigrant farmers make a sustainable living by farming parcels in Houston.  They lost crops but interestingly not by flooding but by the unrelenting rain.  In October a group of us visited the site in southwest Houston to see how it works.
 
A Rice professor and some students were also there, teaching farmers modern techniques for greater yields.
