Community Garden near

San Antonio Community Resource Directory

The Eastside Sprout Community Garden offers fresh produce, gardening education, and a safe community space to gather.

All of the produce grown here is free, and you're welcome to pick anytime. We simply ask that visitors respect the space and leave enough produce to share with others who visit.

What's growing depends on the season! We try to plant a variety of things that we think people will like to eat. Please let us know if you have any requests.

There are plenty of other ways to enjoy the garden:

  • Host an event or meeting.
  • Have lunch under the heritage oak tree.
  • Share your photos and tag us on social media.
  • Share a favorite recipe or memory.
  • Play with the cats.
The garden gate near the sheds is open anytime the parking lot gate is open, usually during business hours (8:00 AM - 5:00, M-F) and some Saturdays.

Time Dollar is committed to providing food that is healthy and nutritious based on availability. Boxes or bags are prepared to include food from each food group. We try to make it as nutritious as possible. We include fresh herbs and vegetables from our Jardín de la Esperanza community garden.

Through our partnership with the Yard Farmers and Ranchers Market, we are also able to include fresh locally grown and organic vegetables, herbs, artisanal breads, free-range eggs, artisanal cheese, condiments, and
sometimes pork or beef. All food items are based on availability. The food pantry is open to all residents of Bexar County once per month who meet income guidelines.

Through our Garden Program, we include a spring and fall series titled “Gardening and Sustainable Living Classes.” We teach Square Foot Gardening to those who come to our Time Dollar Community Table food pantry. People learn to use a simple square-foot gardening technique, which uses 20% of the space, 20% of the water, and 20% of the work but still produces 100% of the harvest. This garden-to-table process provides nutritious, chemical-free vegetables and herbs.

Ground-level or tabletop garden frames are provided. Class series include techniques in planting, herbs & companion planting, household use of herbs, composting, water saving, organic pest control, saving seeds, nutrition, healthy cooking, diabetes management through food, sustainable cooking & refrigeration, canning, and use of traditional medicinal plants for healing. Garden-to-table eating is promoted throughout our classes for health.

Our program is unique in that we provide descriptions of unusual vegetables along with storage, cooking instructions, and recipes. We also provide cooking demos and their respective recipes so our guests can taste these types of vegetables. We provide nutrition classes focusing on diabetes, healthy eating, and using vegetables from your garden.

CIELO Garden at House of Prayer is a community based partnership involving volunteers, educators and members of San Antonio's resettled refugee community. The gardens are located at House of Prayer Lutheran Church, where the congregation has opened their doors for adult education courses and social services to provide for San Antonio's nearby refugee community through Catholic Charities Refugee Resettlement Agency and Northside ISD Adult Education Program.

The gardens are a Green Spaces Alliance affiliated community garden that provides for students to have access to their own garden plots, as well as used in conjunction with their English literacy courses. These gardens are purely volunteer operated and funded by donations, a Green Spaces grant, and through the financial support our garden volunteers, families, and friends.

This began as a community garden tended by Refugees mainly and continues to work with refugees. If you are interested in a plot or volunteering in the garden please call Jennifer Alaniz at the House of Prayer Lutheran Church church office.
