The Westbury Community Garden is one of the largest, most successful community gardens in Houston.  The garden has won both local and national awards. As our mission: “The Westbury Community Garden educates adults and children about good nutrition and ecology, strengthens community spirit, provides organically-grown food, and serves as a gathering place for the community.”  The garden’s slogan is “Growing Community through Gardening” and that is what it does.

Supporting a Green and Healthy Community

Support for public parks & green spaces (Chimney Rock Park, Hager Park, Westbury Park, Willow Waterhole Park, Levitt Pavilion Houston, trails and esplanades, and the Westbury Community Garden).  Our goal is to create a plan that will provide 1.) much needed green space for our neighborhood with the creation of linear parks, gardens and jogging/walking trails and 2.) habitat for our wildlife with the rehabilitation of these areas into “Habitat Highways ™” while improving our quality of life through the creation of a “Green Network”.
