“Community Gardening Comes to South San Antonio”


 One of the cool things going on in my part of town is the South Presa community garden.  The project was funded by Green Spaces Alliances.  Mrs. Hardberger played a role in getting them started.

Organized neighborhood associations, non-profit corporations, public institutions, and unincorporated associations may apply.

Green Spaces Alliance works to encourage the development of community gardens throughout San Antonio. The keystone of their program is sustainability, creating gardens that will benefit neighbors and neighborhoods for years to come. The program began in 2006. Three pilot projects and a fourth network garden have been funded through this program, and another ten received other assistance. In 2008 Green Spaces Alliance plans to assist eight to twelve gardens to organize, plan, develop and maintain a neighborhood garden.
