24th Annual Mission Hills Garden Walk Takes Place on Saturday, May 7

| March 5, 2022 | 0 Comments

The 2022 Mission Hills Garden Walk, a much-loved gardening tradition, will focus this year on edible gardening.  It will again be held on the Saturday of Mother’s Day weekend, May 7.  The COVID pandemic has piqued interest in gardening, with fruits and vegetables at the top of the growing list.  Visitors will learn from neighbors how to incorporate edibles into their existing garden plans, and how little space is really needed to sustain a family’s produce.

The majority of the gardens this year have not been seen in previous garden walks, and the variety will provide interest to all visitors, whether they plan to grow produce or not. 

Knowing that many school youth have continued learning at home, this year’s Garden Walk will again include a scavenger hunt with a prize for all youth finding the treasures in the gardens.  Admission is free for children 10 and under, however strollers are not allowed in the gardens.

The Garden Walk is designed to be a leisurely two-mile stroll through Mission Hills, known for its variety of home and garden styles.  To assure safety again this year, participants will select a time slot for starting the walk, with a limited number of individuals in any one garden at a time.  Guests should plan to wear face masks and use social distancing.  Participants will pick up their maps at Mission Hills Nursery, 1525 Fort Stockton Drive, on the day of the walk at their selected

start time.   Tickets go on sale March 15 and should be purchased in advance ($30) at www.missionhillsgardenclub.org.  There is no guarantee tickets will be available the day of the walk.

Proceeds from the annual garden walk support community improvement projects such as the Gecko Garden at Grant Elementary, restoration of Allen Canyon, Pioneer Park, and Presidio Park, and scholarships to students studying agriculture and related fields.

Gardens can create an inviting and colorful setting for guests and homeowners to enjoy.
