Watersaver Landscape Tour Goes “Virtual”

While the Coronavirus pandemic continues to dictate the need to preclude large community gatherings, that has not dampened the enthusiasm for continuing the Watersaver Landscape Tour in 2020. The Gardening Volunteers of South Texas (GVST), San Antonio Water System (SAWS) and Trinity Glen Rose Groundwater Conservation District (TGR) are still gearing up to bring you an inside look at some nice-looking landscapes in San Antonio, but this year you’ll being hopping on Zoom rather than a tour bus.

“We had to do a little re-imagining of the Landscape Tour, but we now have a great plan to conduct the tour online,” said TGR Assistant General Manager Amanda Maloukis. “This year, we will be featuring landscapes in Sonterra. We will be producing some short videos with beautiful photography to give attendees a first-hand look at various types of plants used in our featured landscapes as well as some interesting ideas people can use to remake their own yards. Our sponsors will be providing some awesome prize packages and we’re planning to have some time for questions and answers toward the end of the online broadcast.”

About Us

Joining GVST has its perks! Members enjoy a 10% discount card to select nurseries, an annual Member Appreciation event, our Happy Hour get togethers at Members homes, and field trips to various local gardening venues. Being a Member only requires a love of gardening and a willingness to share knowledge with others and to fill out the Census Form located on the Website. GVST equips Members and volunteers with knowledge through Essentials Classes the third Monday of the month via Zoom until we can have social gatherings again. GVST has no formal meetings and we do not count the hours you volunteer. Having you at our events, classes and special projects is what makes our organization and community great!
