Are you looking for a family-friendly garden event tonight? If so, come meet the members and neighbors of the El Dorado Community Garden! They’re hosting a S’mores night around their newly built fire pit.Bring your ingredients for your S’mores, a chair, and a joke or story to share and have a good time.
El Dorado Community Garden is one of the newer gardens in the Green Spaces Alliance network. Spearheaded by Zanel Pizarro, it went from an overgrown unused tennis court to a beautiful active garden in a very short time. Check out the before and after photos!
When asked what gardeners and the community think about the garden, Zanel replied that “It's a safe place to meet neighbors, get a little exercise and to belong to the community without having to belong to the voluntary HOA.”
The evening and S’mores event kicks off at 7:00pm. Do attend and have a chat with the gardeners and Zanel - she has a dynamic personality and is full of garden marketing ideas! With her leadership and commitment, this garden is another example of a Green Spaces Alliance network asset. Thank you El Dorado Community Garden and for helping to build the garden-to-garden network experience! Garden address: 12606 Prima Vista, SATX 78233. ... See MoreSee Less
