Feasting Outside the Box at Hot Wells
Published: June 11, 2014
“I planted a lot of stuff with these guys in mind … seasons are so wacky, so things are kind of surprising as to what works and what doesn’t. Every year I have a bumper crop of blank,” Parr said. He’s also learned where to not plant any garden beds, namely near the river where temperatures cool dramatically enough to freeze most crops.
Guests will be given free reign to check out the space, wander alongside Parr’s gardens and learn about the area’s appeal, which Nowlin succinctly describes as “beautiful, dilapidated, sexy and really weird.”
Funds from the event will go toward the Conservancy and the ultimate goal of turning the area into a county park where San Antonians can learn about the history of Hot Wells.
“I’ll get to stay on the property, but it’ll turn into this great place to go with lots of gardens and life and where people can learn how to be a little more sustainable,” Parr said.
