What we reported

Brookwood in Georgetown moved into a new 9,000-square-foot facility in May. The cafe and shop provides an additional space for adults with special needs to participate in BiG’s vocational program. The BiG Cafe is located within the BiG Shop, which sells pottery, jewelry and personalized gifts created by the nonprofit’s employees, known as citizens.

The latest

In October, founder and Director Erin Kiltz said Brookwood was planning to build a greenhouse that would act as a retail venue for the 47 greenhouses at Brookwood in Houston and sell aquaponic lettuce and herbs to locals at its Georgetown location.

What’s next

As of January, the greenhouse was still under construction. Kiltz said she and the citizens were striving toward the greenhouse being full of plants and gardening accessories and launching their aquaponic lettuce and herbs by spring 2017.
