Gardening 101

Gardening in West Texas can be a wild ride, especially when you are coming from the east. There is much less water available here in West Texas, as well as weather that can be a bit irregular, but that doesn't mean you can't have a beautiful garden. You just need to re-think what a garden is. These Monthly classes will bring you up to speed on the tips and tricks you will need to make plants bloom in this dry land. These programs happen on the first Saturday of each month from 10:30 A.M. - 12:00 P.M.

Gardening 101 Will be taking a break over the winter, but will return in March to help you get your garden ready for the Spring season.


Volunteer!

The Best way to learn more about our garden is to volunteer! We have Open Volunteer Days most Fridays and Saturdays from 10:30 A.M. to 12:30 P.M. No previous gardening experience required. Just show up with a smile, and we will take care of the rest. There are weeds to eradicate, new plants to plant, trees to trim, and plenty of fun to have. You can show up on the day of, or call Sarah at (432) 684-6827 to let us know you are coming.

Garden Explorers

Calling all 3rd - 5th graders! Garden explorers is an outdoor learning experience for students interested in gardening. We have our very own raised bed to grow our own food, tools to work the soil, and a large garden area to explore! Join us on the 3rd Saturday of every month from 10 A.M. - 12 P.M.


December 16th: Garden Science!

What is it that makes a garden good for plants? Some of our crops are ready to eat while others struggled to grow at all. What could we be doing better in our own garden? This month we will be putting our garden to the test with hands on soil and water experiments.

This will be an outdoor exploration so students should come with water and weather appropriate clothing. Tools and supervision will be provided.
