Free Gardening Workshops for Community start Friday

The City of El Paso has coordinated with Texas A&M AgriLife Extension to provide a free Gardening 101 Workshop series with the first workshop scheduled for 4 p.m. on Friday, April 1, at the Multipurpose Center located at 9031 Viscount.

The community gardening workshops are part of the City’s resilience and sustainability strategy. The workshops, taught by the El Paso County Masters Gardeners, provide the opportunity for people of all ages and skill levels to learn regionally appropriate gardening techniques including: identifying and selecting garden soil, water-saving irrigation techniques, lawn maintenance best practices, managing garden bugs and how to plant in the fall, winter, and spring.

Residents are encouraged to grow their own local food to support healthier and more sustainable lifestyles in our region, as well as contributing to the local economy.

Growing your own food contributes to improved air quality for our region as it saves food miles, the distance food travels from the grower to your plate.

The workshops will be held on the following dates:
