The Children’s Vegetable Garden (CVG) Program is a Bexar County AgriLife Extension Program which, through partnerships with community organizations, provides gardening opportunities for children.

The program offers two 16-seek sessions (spring and fall) for children to get hands-on gardening experience from Master Gardener mentors as they tend their plots and learn to plant, grow, and harvest vegetables.

Currently, the CVG Program is available through partnerships with the San Antonio Botanical Garden and Phil Hardberger Park.

Children’s Vegetable Garden Program Blog, is a great resource for families participating in the program as well as people new to vegetable gardening! You can follow the week-by-week agendas and blog for comprehensive, step-by-step instructions to a successful vegetable gardening experience.

Detailed information can be found at the links below each location.
