Viviendas y Jardines Del Westside (Homes and Gardens of the Westside)
Wednesday, September 15 @ 7:00 am - 2:00 pm
As part of celebrations of Día de los Muertos on November 1st, join this two-month long community garden project as a response in a time of a Pandemic and Gentrification. Jardines y Viviendas del Westside will be centered in San Antonio’s Historic Westside, with cempasúchil (marigold) gardens planted at El Rinconcito de Esperanza and other sites in the nationally-recognized Alazán-Apache courts. This project is a culturally driven response con Corazón y Alma (with heart and soul) — a Limpia (cleansing) of Our Barrio. Our Neighborhood. Our Ambiente. Our Spaces. Our Historias, Our Stories. Mi Barrio No Se Vende! Come be a part!
