The Get Moving Houston Gardens provide hands-on experience in vegetable gardening and urban agriculture to community members and encourage the consumption of local fruits and vegetables. The Gardens are an interactive learning opportunity to demonstrate nutrition and gardening practices in an urban environment. It promotes physical activity and mental well-being through affordable social interactions for people of all ages. There are 15 garden sites across the city of Houston designated by type as a Garden Club, Adoption Garden, Specialty Garden, Employee Garden or Hybrid Garden (combo of two types).
