The 25-year-old Louisiana State University grads can be found here on weekdays tending to the rows of all natural lettuces, herbs and fruit-bearing plants that fill the space they built with their own hands. Both had other jobs waiting for them upon graduation; Alvis had a shot in the real-estate business, and Braud was going to work as an investment banker. Several models later, they are fully functional in their Hockley greenhouse and sell fresh produce to 15 Houston restaurants
