Organizers volunteer at Southwest Workers’ Union Garden for The San Antonio Non-Violent Direct Action Training Camp

Screen Shot 2013-06-16 at 8.03.11 PMSan Antonio will host a non-violent direct action training camp June 28th to June 30th as part of Fearless Summer. This event will be located on the East Side of San Antonio at 1416 East Commerce, at the Southwest Workers’ Union Movement Gallery.


Wednesday afternoon, organizers and volunteers worked with the Southwest Workers Union’ weeding, planting, propping tomato plants and harvesting. The credit for volunteering will be used toward the final cost of renting the space for the training camp. Doug was in town from Tar Sands Blockade for court, and stopped by to help in the garden and put up a tent after his court date earlier that morning.


Organizers and volunteers are asked to attend the Garden Workday on Wednesday from 10 am to 12 pm, Thursday from 7pm to 8pm or water the garden on Sundays. The community garden functions on a trade/barter system. During workdays volunteers are able to take home vegetables, herbs, extra seedlings, and seeds.
