Fashion retailers join forces to bring space farming to schools in Houston,Texas

Local Houston business owners band together to raise money on November 12th for Nicole’s Garden, a space gardening program for children

Three local businesses will play host to a sip and shop charity event at Mio Boutique on Thursday, November 12, 2015 from 6:00pm-8:00pm. A portion of all proceeds will benefit Nicole’s Garden, a non-profit organization dedicated to alternative gardening programs.

“I was so honored when they approached me about wanting to host a charity event benefiting our non-profit,” stated Founder Dr. Noreen Khan Mayberry. “Alternative gardening, also known as urban farming, is quickly becoming a necessity in dense cities like Houston. Our program helps students understand urban farming and how they can play a role in creating organic food right in their homes,” Dr. Noreen explains.

The sip & shop charity event will allow attendees to shop for clothing and jewelry from featured vendors and a portion of all proceeds earned will go to fund the space farming program for Nicole’s Garden.

“Having all these businesses come together for a cause of this magnitude really says a lot about the City of Houston,” Dr. Noreen explains. “Our natural resources are depleting rapidly and implementation of hydroponic vertical farms will be the way of the future as those resources continue to diminish,” the world’s first female space toxicologist details. “We implement space tested technology in our urban farming and for children to get access to this knowledge is priceless, said Dr. Noreen.

This sip and shop charity event is brought to you by Mio Boutique, Zayver Designs and Tezaria’s High Couture Jewelry. All of these sponsors will have couture clothing and jewelry available to purchase. The event is free to attend. Food and drinks will be provided by Merche and Chameleon Distributors.
