Big Letter with Gardopia Garden.png
Gardopia sprouted in 2015 to address health disparities in a high-crime corridor on the near-Eastside of San Antonio. Initially funded by the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA), Gardopia implemented crime prevention through environmental design (CPTED) as a methodology to reduce crime around an abandoned lot. Working with SAHA, this became the Eastside's first "gardopia," or garden utopia, where neighbors grow their own food and transform their community.
To empower communities to practice wellness in their daily lives through gardening. 
To create a more educated, healthier, and environmentally sustainable society.
