Diocese of El Paso opens new community garden


Spring has sprung in El Paso — and a new community garden is blooming!

The Diocese of El Paso opened its new Pastoral Center Community Garden on Saturday. 

The garden aims to unite the community and support sustainability, renewable energy, and other eco-friendly programs.

Residents of all gardening abilities are encouraged to care for the garden’s plants and join the cause.

“I tell everyone there is no such thing as a green thumb or black thumb,” Master Gardener Janet Petrzelka said. “All you need to know is how to plant and what to plant that is best for the El Paso climate,”

The Pastoral Center Community Garden is located at 8330 Park Haven. For more information, call 915-872-8414.
