Urban farm program gets boost from McNair Foundation
Students and administrators recently joined Janice McNair to celebrate the completion of Pro-Vision Academy’s expansion of its urban farm program.
Pro-Vision Academy is a state charter school located at 4590 Wilmington St. in south Houston. Pro-Vision Academy serves young people in third through 12th grades. It also has a two-acre working Urban Farm/Aquaponics Program that “uses the production and sale of produce to instill the spirit of entrepreneurialism in under-served young men, while addressing detrimental issues that are prevalent in the community such as childhood obesity and the lack of access to healthy and fresh food options.”
