Recurring Event Event Series: Tour the Skyfarm

Tour the Skyfarm

May 27 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm CDT

The Blackwood Skyfarm at POST Houston is available for educational tours to groups, schools, businesses, and more each week by appointment, made at least 48 hours in advance. Our availability for tours is Thursday 8 AM to 12 PM, Friday 12 PM to 2 PM, and Saturday 2 PM to 4 PM. Our standard introductory tour lasts one hour but can be expanded to a two-hour deep dive or a four-hour educational volunteer day.
At our introductory tour, we walk our current crops and demonstrate how the Skyfarm blends ancestral, regenerative food production practices and 21st-century technologies to produce organic food with fewer food miles and a lower carbon footprint. The tour will also include a seasonal food education component inspired by our current crops. Each visitor will leave with an understanding of the climate impact of our conventional food system, how farming practices deployed at the Blackwood Landfarm in Hempstead and Skyfarm at POST Houston help to mitigate the effects of greenhouse gas emissions, and the benefits of locally grown, nutrient-dense foods and plant medicine.
By envisioning and building the Skyfarm, POST Houston shows that the sky is the limit for far-sighted leaders to learn how to transform a historically short-sighted city. Blackwood is thrilled to be a part of this collaboration and to be blazing new trails toward Houston’s green future. Please join us!
Tours are open to the public, and the suggested donation for those who can is $10 per person. To schedule a tour, please email info@blackwoodland.org.
