This fifth ward garden outpost is a demonstration project where we are building a garden farm in the inner city. Joe Nelson Icet started the garden in November 2001 on an abandoned piece of land in an industrial area near downtown. It's continued to expand with the help of a few dedicated volunteers.

To get involved or volunteer, contact Joe 713-261-5903 or joenelsonicet@yahoo.com or just come by the Farm.

The Last Organic Outpost was created to be a beautiful agricultural park in the inner city, to become a community of people helping people to learn about health and nutrition by growing what we eat. We believe it is urgent to know how to grow the food we eat. Our goal to promote self reliance for other communities, to refine ways to grow nutrient dense foods using cutting edge technologies like sea water agriculture and EM (effective microorganisms), to learn and teach holistic nutrition, help to create a food based economy in Houston by participating with other local and regional growers to produce and bring to local sustainable farmers markets quality nutrition accessible to all. We are committed to forming alliances within our communities and by contributing to neighborhood food pantries. We at The Last Organic Outpost believe that the future of out planet depends on what we do today. We will advance our mission through internships, volunteer opportunities, tours of the garden, picnics, classes, and work weekends and public speaking engagements on topics such as raw foods nutrition\live foods preparation, seasonal and regional planting, identifying and introducing into our diet wild edibles from this area, juicing and nutrition for children in the garden. We are in the process of developing
