Harris County 4-H Agent Featured on Great Day Houston

April 1 – Though a new concept to many, vertical planting is becoming more popular in urban communities that offer minimal space for farming. Prairie View A&M Cooperative Extension Program Agent Jeremy Peaches is doing his part to teach and inform youth on proper techniques to grow food in the city with his recent feature on local talk-show, Great Day Houston.

Peaches spoke with Great Day Houston host Deborah Duncan about vertical planting using aquaponics and hydroponics, and the various ways sustainable farming can be done in urban areas such as Houston. Also during his featured segment, Peaches shared the work and programming that PVAMU CEP provides to students in Harris County through its 4-H and Youth Development unit.
