This month the Beacon Hill Community Garden comes alive, literally, and figuratively through colorful stories and ornamental artwork. Join artist and storyteller Sarah Loden for a day of art-making and helpful plant information. Loden will touch on a number of plant topics, including nutritious eating habits, the life cycle of a plant, a garden’s ecosystem and acts of social kindness.
Participants will create colorful, quirky and one-of-a-kind ornamental figures that will decorate and become permanent fixtures of the Beacon Hill Community Garden. All ages are welcome to participate in this fun and free event and reflect on the value of plants, plant life and the role we each play in caring for the Earth.
The Gardens Alive Community Art Project is sponsored by Green Spaces Alliance, Beacon Hill Neighborhood Association, and the San Antonio Department for Culture and Creative Development.
The art project starts at 10 a.m. on Saturday, March 12, at the Beacon Hill Community Garden, located at 1144 Gramercy Pl. For more information, or to register, visit www.greensatx.org/events/gardensalive- community-art-project.
