Community Garden Workdays
Every Saturday, Gardopia Gardens hosts Community Gardens Workdays, fostering a sense of community wellness through the practice of horticulture & organic gardening. Community members are welcomed to engage in an annual series of horticultural education.
Our goal is to increase self-sufficiency by empowering individuals to partake in growing their own food. Individuals are encouraged to Adopt-A-Plot @ Gardopia Gardens or build gardens in their own homes. This event is every Saturday on The Eastside of San Antonio @ 619 N. New Braunfels from 10am-12p.
Lunch & Learn
Every month, we host a guest speaker at our community garden to lead a guided discussion on topics that range from integrative pest management, composting, inter-cropping, seed selection, and more. Discussion is accompanied by a meal made with produce harvested from our gardens.
This event is at no cost to the public @ Gardopia Gardens 619 N. New Braunfels from 12p-1p
