Community Garden

Helping grow our community.

The Garcia Center Community Garden educates community members of all ages on the basic principles of gardening, growing food, and making simple, tasty recipes using that food.

The garden is also home to the stunning "El Jardin" mural, created by local artist Mayra Zamora and painted with help from the Teens Building for Tomorrow Camp members.


We welcome community support. If you wish to volunteer, please call us at 361-825-3600.


We need donations of seeds, compost and garden equipment to keep the community garden healthy throughout the year.

Thank you!
