Gardens flourish through your generosity. On an individual basis, you are invited to participate in the network by becoming a supporting member of Green Spaces Alliance, an active member of a network community garden, or a volunteer on one or more occasions at one or more gardens.
If you don’t have the time to join a garden or volunteer once in a while, there are several other ways that you can support community gardens in San Antonio.
Participate in Our Next Fundraising Event
Following in the path of our extremely successful 5k garden tour, Green Spaces is hosting SicloVerde. SicloVerde is a bicycle tour visiting six community gardens. Three tour options will be offered: 14-mile group tour, 8-mile group tour, and self-guided. Participants gather at the first garden in the morning and travel in groups from garden to garden, visiting with gardeners and taking part in fun garden-themed activities before completing the loop.

Become a Financial Supporter
Donate to the Community Gardens Program in 2014 and your donation will go twice as far. Thanks to the generous contribution of the Kronkosky Foundation, each dollar, up to $50,000, will be matched through August of 2014.
- Donate to Green Spaces Alliance or become a member.
- Do some spring cleaning: clean out your storage shed and donate underused equipment to community gardens in San Antonio.
- Buy some seeds. When you purchase seeds through Renee’s Garden, and use the coupon code FR712B, GSA will receive a check for 25% of all orders received.
- Sponsor a tree, bench, planter box, set of tools, or a whole garden and have your name posted in that garden
- Offer your land: neighborhood groups are required to obtain land use agreements for a minimum of five years. Do you have a parcel of land for a neighborhood group that’s looking?
- Offer your service: if you have connections in the landscaping, nursery, irrigation, or construction industry, please consider donating employee time, materials, or discounts on merchandise.
We’d be happy to play matchmaker between a landowner with an eye for green space and community improvement and a community group that wants to start a garden if your contribution meets certain site requirements. With your help, gardeners’ vision for a productive and beautifying garden can become a reality.
Many community gardeners are green-behind-the-ears when it comes to gardening in central Texas. They come with little experience and lots of desire. You can become a garden’s mentor by offering your years of experience, advice and encouragement.
