Diocese of El Paso’s Pastoral Center Community Garden now open

The Diocese of El Paso’s Pastoral Center Community Garden is now open.

The center is inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical titled “Laudato Si,” which encourages sustainability, renewable energy and other eco-friendly programs. The diocese says it took its cue to create a garden accessible to its local community and to work to encourage neighbors to join the cause.

“We master gardeners love to come out to the community and teach how to garden. We are happy to help the diocese give life to this garden. I tell everyone there is no such thing as a green thumb or black thumb. All you need to know is how to plant and what to plant that is best for the El Paso climate,” master gardener, Janet Petrzelka said.

The garden is located at 8330 Park Haven behind the Diocese of El Paso Pastoral Center grounds.
