About this Park
Jardin De Los Tres Angeles (Garden of the Three Angels) is in the backyard of the building at 8th St. and Tyler in downtown Brownsville Texas. Three children were murdered in the building. This backyard property, now owned by the City of Brownsville has been turned over to the Brownsville Farmers' Market to develop as a Community Garden for this neighborhood. The residents are Hispanic and are low income families. This will not be the first community garden in the Brownsville area but it will be the first located in a local neighborhood.
In addition to the Board of Directors of the Brownsville Farmers' Market, our partners in this project are the City of Brownsville Parks and Recreation Department and the Texas Department of Agriculture.
The land has been excavated to remove weed and gass roots and will be backfilled with good topsoil and compost, ready for planting in January. Yes, down here in Deep South Texas, January starts our planting season.
