Our Mission:

To sustain the natural environment and enhance urban spaces through land conservation, community engagement, and education.

Green Spaces Alliance has received a $50,000 grant

from the Aetna Foundation!

The grant will support the Fruitful San Antonio Initiative, a multi-faceted program designed to inspire active living and healthy eating.

Funds will be used to create opportunities for local residents to participate in projects that increase understanding of the cycle of growing, harvesting, preparing and enjoying fresh local food.  The Fruitful San Antonio Initiative will feature three Community Harvest Blitzes, four Harvest Stations, one Mobile Harvest Station, and eighteen hands-on “Plot-to-Plate” workshops throughout 2015, reaching an estimated 850 people in the first year.

“Community-based programs can have a powerful impact in changing people’s health and their lives, family by family and neighborhood by neighborhood,” said Garth Graham, M.D., MPH, president of the Aetna Foundation. “We are pleased to support Green Spaces Alliance’s programs that are making a difference in the lives of families from San Antonio’s underserved communities.”

Green Spaces Alliance will be collaborating with a number of public and private partners on this effort. Local organizations, groups and individuals are encouraged to participate and contribute to the program by contacting Angela Hartsell, Community Gardens Program Manager at angela@greensatx.org.
