      St. John Neumann’s garden is new to the Green Spaces network, having been built in the fall of 2017. The Bexar County Master Gardeners will help us decide the best way to orient our garden beds and plants for optimal growth. This will include a mapping exercise, overview of Square Foot Gardening and the Three Sister’s approach to growing crops. Companion planting and symbiosis is very important as is planting to attract beneficial insects. Identifying healthy and diseased specimens is also part of the discussion, as is trellising, caging and watering.
