|John Karas, Realtor|
As those of you who listen to my monthly reports on The Cleverley Radio Show or follow my blog know, I am a realtor and foodie. Over time I have become more and more interested in organic and locally grown food. Imagine my excitement when I discovered a new community that has it's own organic farm where residents can lease space to grow their own fruits and vegetables. The development also boasts a Community Shared Agriculture program, a planned weekly farmer's market as well as "you-pick" areas where residents can pick their own fruits and vegetables. There are also educational opportunities available for residents getting started with an interest in growing their own produce.
The community is Harvest Green and it is strategically located in Fort Bend County, between Katy and Sugar Land, which gives residents the option of several routes to make their daily commute.
I sold a home to one the very first residents in the community and I have to say they are one happy family. More than 10 home builders are involved in building the new homes with prices starting from as low as the $240's and to above the $430's.
The resident only farm club provides the opportunity for home owners to lease their own plots of land and grow whatever they choose as long as they do not use pesticides and follow the rules of the FDA's National Organic Program.
Harvest Green bills themselves as Fort Bend County’s newest and most innovative 1,300 acre master-planned community and "agri-hood". They are indeed the first Houston-area development centered around a community farm.
As the community grows and programs are put in place residents will have access to just-picked produce, neighborhood gatherings where they can form friendships over casual wine dinners, and a place where their children will gain an appreciation for the environment as they watch crops grow. Harvest Green truly is a master planned community unlike any other in the greater Houston area.
I can not stress the importance of having a realtor represent you when purchasing a new home, I am familiar with this community and it's builders. I would like nothing more than to hear from you if you would like more information about Harvest Green. I am happy to take you on a personal tour the community. My goal is to place clients in communities that are right for them and to negotiate important details on their behalf.
