Greater Houston Urban Garden Festival
For Immediate Release
Houston, TX, August 21, 2010. Divine Leaders Inc., an educational and community service nonprofit organization, will host The Greater Houston Urban Garden Festival.
This is a celebration for many wonderful reasons! First, it will pay homage to the Honorable Marcus Mosiah Garvey, who was born on August 17, 2010, and whose Universal Negro Improvement Association’s “Africa for the Africans” campaign gave Black people in the early 1900’s hope for a better tomorrow. In addition to that, we will also be celebrating the community’s involvement with The Marcus Garvey Liberation Garden and Food Coop Program via multiple community awareness and family activities. The event will include live performances and presentations from local independent music and visual artists of varying genres.
This event will also mark the beginning of The Ujamaa Marketplace. The Ujamaa Marketplace will demonstrate cooperative economics by featuring local vendors for festival goers to patronize as well as learn more about vendor’s respective businesses and associated organizations. To find out more information to become a vendor, please contact Nykeba Griffin at 832-788-4332 or www.twitter.com/abimbola80.
