SAN BENITO — From trail to table.
The community garden located on the Heavin Resaca Trail will soon be seeing more life.
Community members wanting to learn how to grow fresh fruits and vegetables will be able to attend a six-week session hosted by the AgriLife Extension Office in collaboration with Tu Salud Si Cuenta.
Sessions are free and offer families the opportunity to grow their own fruits and vegetables in the community raised garden beds.
Danny Cuevas teaches the gardening course and said the community meets once a week for six weeks.
Once the course is completed, participants receive a certificate and an insulated food bag.
Residents who finish the course and wish to continue with their small garden are welcomed to continue the sessions.
Cuevas has retained seven families from previous sessions and has five to seven open garden boxes.
