Urban Harvest has a new look! Thanks go to generous underwriting by Fisher Schalles, creative direction and copy from Katy Bomar Creative, stunning graphic design from Kay Krenek Creative, input from the board, and tireless efforts of the staff. Some of the major goals included a fresh, clean, simple new layout for the site, consolidating the vast educational documentation, and mobile/search engine optimization. Behind the scenes, it was also important to institute a image/document management repository, customized class sign-up, updated member/donor submissions, user-configurable web content to keep the site up-to-date and relevant, and reporting/workflows for automated CRM, PayPal, and dashboard management. You can see the new site at http://urbanharvest.org.
------- Founded in 1994, Urban Harvest has garnered a well-deserved reputation as a leader in the local food movement. Urban Harvest promotes healthy communities, sound nutrition and respect for the environment by educating children and adults and facilitating harvest and habitat gardens. Under the direction of an all-volunteer board, Urban Harvest has grown from humble beginnings to employ a full-time staff and literally thousands of volunteers. Funding comes from nearly 1,500 annual memberships, and from individual and corporate donations, private foundations, and public grants.
