Cultivate San Antonio

We're a group of urban agricultural enthusiasts who realized the need for a one-stop resource for growing food in the city. Our purpose is to feature the amazing growers, gardens, businesses, and organizations that San Antonio has to offer, while equipping our readers with the information they need to get outside, get dirty, and get to work sowing an equitable and flourishing future.


About Us

We know that a green city is a thriving city, so we make gardening resources and knowledge accessible to everyone. Cultivate is full of tips, articles, and guides that will help you create beautiful and edible spaces. Whether you're the most seasoned gardener or are just beginning your planting journey. Our directory includes the most up to date information about local agricultural businesses, farmers markets, and community gardens. In the Cultivate Seasons section, you'll find information about which crops to plant when, and ideas to incorporate seasonal veggies into your diet.

Planting within city limits can be challenging, so we offer ideas and advice in our Cultivate Tips and Tricks section. Look here to learn about keeping chickens in your own backyard and to find other urban agriculture tips. Return to this section in the future, as we'll include additional ideas for gardening with limited space and limited light.

Growing food is personal, and it can be anything from a casual to a radical act. We are proud to give voice to the problems plaguing our local food systems - from the climate crisis to the lack of social justice surrounding our food deserts. Our Cultivating History section is dedicated to these issues, but you'll also find them peppered throughout the magazine. With the weight of the social, environmental, and political climate, we understand the need for strengthening mental and physical wellness. Head over to our Cultivate Wellness section to explore the relationships between gardening and health.

We invite you to join us on our journey to become San Antonio's premier agricultural resource. Take a peek inside and let us know what you think. And welcome to the Cultivate family!
