GMA crews came to Houston as part of the Rise and Shine tour, celebrating everything that makes our city so incredible.
Dolphin watching in Galveston and the Johnson Space Center are two of the places ABC News correspondent Kaylee Hartung visited.
“This was a really fun assignment for me because I know and love Houston and I know and love Texas. I’m from Louisiana right next door. I lived in Austin for five years, so it was fun delving into it. The city of Houston has so much to offer,” Hartung said.
About 50 volunteers got up early and helped create an urban garden on the roof of Post HTX downtown. It is one of the largest urban rooftop farms in the world.
An initiative led by the Blackwood Educational Land Institute focused on regenerative agriculture and growing food where it’s needed.
“Houston is a great, great city, but we have about half a million people living in food deserts right now. We have about three quarters of a million people who are food insecure, many of whom are children. Well, we’re trying to let people know that you can grow food in the middle of the city,” said an organizer at the Blackwood Land Education Institute.
GMA news anchors even got a chance to sample the famous pecan pie from Houston’s Three Brothers Bakery.
