Children's Vegetable Garden

Children's Vegetable Garden

A place for children 7 to 14 years old to get their hands dirty as they learn every aspect of gardening, from planting to harvesting.

The PHP Children’s Vegetable Garden is located at the park’s Historic Homestead. With the help of volunteers from the Bexar County Master Gardeners, children begin the morning each Tuesday with a hands-on activity in the garden, followed by a related lesson. Children have fun gardening while learning about team work, agricultural commodities, nutrition, and how to be good stewards of the land. 

The garden was created with significant community help. Eagle Scout candidates built the raised beds, potting tables, benches and compost bins. People generously gave to the Conservancy through its 2015 Big Give S.A. campaign to provide funds for supplies, plants, tools and deer-proof fence. New Earth Composting donated soil, and the park’s Weekend Weed Warrior volunteers spread mulch and filled the beds to ready them for the young gardeners.

The PHP Children’s Vegetable Garden is a cooperative project of San Antonio Parks and Recreation, Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, Bexar County Master Gardeners, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service. 

  • 20 Raised Garden Beds
  • Drip Irrigation
  • Deer Proof Fence

Children tend their gardens during the Spring 2019 season each Tuesday through June 11.
