Neighborhood Garden Party

    The GROW Local South Texas Neighborhood Garden Party is a play day at the Garden with farm-to-fork food, tours, educational workshops and fun—an open house to show Corpus Christi the potential of what a community garden can be with two goals.

    1. A play day, family-style cookout with Garden tours and Educational Fun.
    2. A fundraising opportunity for program operations at The Garden!

    This year we celebrate The Learning Garden’s continued success.

    We’ve learned that these programs can only GROW when they’re supported by everyone in the community.



    Prepurchase your dinner here. We’re excited to announce that this year our BBQ protein is locally-sourced. For $10/plate, enjoy chicken or a burger, both served with rice, beans, lettuce, tomato and onion. In addition, bring your own potluck side to share. Pre-purchase your locally-sourced BBQ dinner by purchasing your $10 meal in advance SOON.

    The Learning Garden is GROW Local South Texas’ 2-acre, hands-on community teaching garden. Daily, we are GROWing experienced gardeners in the Coastal Bend and teaching folks how to work side-by-side in a safe, community learning space.
