City of San Elizario Launches ‘City-in-a-Box’ mini crop program

The City of San Elizario Urban Agriculture Project is launching City-in-a-Box, a condensed version of their City-to-Table program that provides residents free materials and training to grow their own desert vegetables.

Participating residents will be provided mini crop kits to include: 2×2 raised beds, soil with organic matter, seeds for quick turnaround crops, instructions to grow and starter recipes to use their harvests.

“We have made them adaptable to changing seasons and will provide materials to help supplement their food supplies during this uncertain time,” City of San Elizario Urban Agriculture Project officials shared.

The kits are available for delivery or pick-up but residents will need to contact Octavio to coordinate. Supplies are limited but we will expand the program as demand grows.

“The kits are self-contained, to allow us and our residents to continue to follow safe, social distancing guidelines,” officials added.

Urban Agriculture Program Manager, Octavio Hernandez, is available via phone and email to answer questions or address issues during the growing season.
