Hello! We are team D.I.R.T (in Urban Gardens). D.I.R.T stands for Designing and Investigating Real Things (in Urban Gardens). This semester, we are working with Urban Harvest, a Houston-based nonprofit organization that is empowers people to grow food in their communities through community gardens, education, and farmer’s markets. Our team is working with Urban Harvest to design a tool to make community gardens in food deserts more sustainable.
We are passionate about urban food deserts, human-centered design, and urban farming. We are looking forward to meeting people in Houston’s gardening community, spending time in gardens, and working with Urban Harvest and our CP, Emily!
