ABOUT GARDOPIA

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 San Antonio Eastside's first "gardopia," or garden utopia, where neighbors grow their own food and transform their community.

UPCOMING EVENTS

Thursdays

Gardopia Volunteer Day
5:30pm - 7:00pm

During Gardopia's volunteer days, participants will help with general maintenance and special projects. While engaged in these activities skills will be learned that can be taken back home or to other communities. Additionally, participants will be able to burn some calories through moderate physical activity, and gain community service hours if needed. All ages are welcome to attend, but we ask that minors under 16 years old are accompanied by an adult.
