Community Outreach

We participate in major gardening in-person events throughout the year when possible.

Previous examples:

SAWS Spring Bloom (March)

Garden Center Plant Sale (March)

Festival of Flowers (May)

Top Tomato Contest (June)

Garden Conservancy Tour

Herb Market (October)

Mitchell Lake Hoot n Harvest Festival (October)

Service projects, when possible, involving our volunteers:

  • Gardens, Warrior and Family Support Center, Brooke Army Medical Center
  • Haven for Hope vegetable garden

Neighborhood Fairs (Hopefully in the future we can have these again)

GVST will come to your neighborhood for a Saturday morning Neighborhood Landscape Fair, presented in partnership with San Antonio Water System.

We bring lots of information about watersaving landscaping and gardening, drought-tolerant plants and latest rebate and coupon programs offered by SAWS.  Other activities are often offered, such as “Ask the Expert”, tool sharpening and, based on availability, drought-tolerant plant sales.

Neighborhood Landscape Fairs are coordinated through Homeowner, Neighborhood and Property Owner Associations.
