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, 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 at 10:30 a.m.

August 26: Food for Thought

This program is all about growing food right in your backyard. We’ll discuss what to plant, when to plant it, and how to keep it healthy all the way through harvest.

This is a FREE public program geared towards adults, but families and children are welcome.


The Best way to learn more about our garden is to volunteer! We have Open Volunteer Days every Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. 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.

We can't wait to see you out at the Garden!
