You can be a part of a growing movement in San Antonio. We mean literally… a movement focused on growing. Fruits. Vegetables. You name it! How? Start or participate in a community garden, of course. Join the Green Spaces Alliance of South Texas on Tuesday, July 28, for an informational session about starting a community garden. This orientation session will help you learn how to get your community garden in the ground and provide guidance on everything from planning to funding to sustaining your garden.
The information and support offered by the Green Spaces Alliance helps “cultivate” a spirit of community and healthy neighborhoods through garden-grown food. Green Spaces provides ongoing support and funding for traditional community fruit and vegetable gardens, community food forests, urban orchards, rain gardens, wildscapes for urban life and wildlife, butterfly and pollinator waystations, and any other urban greening project that benefits the community. The alliance currently supports more than 40 community gardens in the San Antonio area.
The orientation session takes place from 6-8 p.m. at the Green Spaces Alliance office, 4901 Broadway, Suite 211. For more information about the session or the alliance, visit www.greensatx.org.
