Master Gardeners’ Info Tables at Bowie High School’s Fiesta de Jardin y Cocina
May 21 @ 9:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
The first annual Fiesta de Jardin y Cocina is being organized by Georgia Odom, an Agriculture teacher at Bowie High School. It hopes to bring awareness about the agriculture classes at Bowie High School. There will be workshops, garden resources like our Master Gardener Information Tables, outdoor cooking, live demonstrations, food, and entertainment.
El Paso County Master Gardeners’ Information Table will be one of the featured educational resources at this event. Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service training provides El Paso Master Gardeners with research-based horticulture information and resources to enhance our wide range of gardening experiences in El Paso. We share that knowledge with members of the community who visit our Information Tables at many public events throughout the year. The Information Tables are also stocked with a wealth of free publications on topics ranging from composting to growing roses or tomatoes to landscape planning and design.
Be on the lookout, too, for the El Paso Gardening Handbook created by the El Paso County Master Gardeners for our area. It addresses El Paso specific gardening concerns and best practices. The handbook provides research-based information and will appeal to both experienced and novice gardeners. It may be purchased for $11. Only cash is accepted, no credit cards.
Our Youth Outreach Committee will also have an Information Table at the Fiesta de Jardin y Cocina. With the younger set in mind, there will be a Worm Education Station, a Seed Memory Game, and an “Are You Smarter Than an Insect?” trivia game.
