El Paso Master Gardeners invite community to Info Table, Summer Vegetable Sale at Ascarate

The El Paso Master Gardeners are bringing their locally grown produce and information tables to residents on summer weekdays, at an easy-to-access location near Ascarate Park.

On Tuesday, July 23 from 9 to 11:30 am residents can visit the grassy area outside the El Paso County Tax Office on Manny Martinez Sr. Drive.

The information table and vegetable sales are held twice a month at the Ascarate-area location.

“As soon as the produce is harvested from our demonstration gardens, we’ll be selling items such as eggplant, tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, and hot peppers,” officials shared via a social media post. “[and] while you’re there, let us know if you have any plant questions.”

“You can feel confident asking us about vegetable and ornamental plants, as well as insects and horticultural practices. In addition, our information tables are stocked with a wealth of free publications on topics ranging from composting to growing roses and tomatoes.”

In addition to the fresh produce, local gardeners will have an opportunity to purchase the new El Paso Gardening Handbook, created by the El Paso County Master Gardeners for our areaIt addresses El Paso-specific gardening concerns and best practices.

“With sections on ornamentals, edibles, turf, native and adapted plants, woody plants, and climate, it will appeal to both experienced and novice gardeners,” officials added.

The handbook was written in cooperation with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and the handbooks may be purchased for $10 each; only cash is accepted, no credit cards.

Additionally, officials announced that their upcoming Master Gardener training class starts this fall.

“If taking an intensive horticulture course, getting hands-on experience, and volunteering to educate and serve the community in interesting and fun ways appeals to you, please talk with the Master Gardeners about this yearly opportunity.”

Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service training provides El Paso Master Gardeners with research-based horticulture information and resources to enhance our wide range of experiences in gardening in the El Paso.  For more information, visit their website.
