Two FREE gardening workshops provided by AARP

Container Garden Basics workshop Thursday, May 3 from 6 - 8 p.m.

SAN ANTONIOAARP is offering two free garden workshops in May. 

This is a perfect opportunity to learn about gardening tips for spring!

AARP is the nation’s largest nonprofit, nonpartisan organization dedicated to empowering Americans 50 and older to choose how they live as they age.

"We’re working to make this city an even better place to live and play by hosting tons of free, local events,"  said AARP representatives.


Health and wellness come first at AARP

Obesity and diabetes are problems throughout our country and especially problematic in San Antonio.

Just growing ingredients in your garden can help you cook healthy meals at home while sticking to a tight budget.

"The returns are endless," said Liz Campanella, Uprooted Gardens co-owner. "You’ll get healthier, it’s so rewarding." 

AARP will continue to host culturally relevant, locally focused and health-conscious events for San Antonians year-round.
