Visit from the MAYOR of Corpus Christi!!

Corpus Christi Mayor Paulette Guajardo and members of Reliant Energy learned about gardening and sustainability after unveiling the recently restored community gardens at the Corpus Christi Montessori School Friday.

The project is a result of the Mayor's Community Gardens Restoration Program, powered by a $50,000 donation from Reliant Energy.

The school received $8,000 from the donation to make repairs and improvements to the garden, including an outdoor harvesting area, irrigation system, rainwater collection tanks and new native plants.

Guajardo said Winter Storm Uri caused havoc across the city and state, destroying community gardens in the area.
