SAN ANTONIO — The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Bexar County will present the Growing Edibles in Your Landscape program from 10:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Aug. 18 in San Antonio.

The program is free and will be held at Blue Star Brewing Company and Restaurant, 1414 S. Alamo Street, Suite 105.

David Rodriguez, AgriLife Extension horticulturist, will be the program instructor.

“This will be a good opportunity for people to come and learn how to grow a family vegetable garden and/or home orchard,” Rodriguez said. “Home-grown foods can be better for overall health, and growing them yourself is not only fun but can give you a greater incentive to improve your eating habits.”

Rodriguez said parking is limited so attendees are encouraged to come early.

“There’s additional parking available on E. Guenther south of S. Alamo Street,” he said. “Attendees can come early and have brunch or stay after and have lunch.”

Bexar County Master Gardeners attending are eligible for two continuing education credits.

For more information, contact Denise Perez at 210-631-0400.
