)-- Garden-Ville celebrates 50 years of organic gardening in 2007. An anniversary celebration will be held at the flagship store location, 7561 Evans Road in San Antonio, Texas. Join them September 29th from 9am – 5pm and 30th from 9am – 4pm for a weekend of gardening lectures and events, giveaways, discounts, a chili cookoff and more.
Malcolm Beck, founder of Garden-Ville says of its beginnings, “My wife and I began operating our farm organically back in 1957. Some call me the grandfather of organics in Texas. I am a grandfather, and old and gray. I don’t mind being called either. However, there is one thing I do mind and that is doing things Nature disapproves of.”
Garden-Ville is now a leader in composting and recycling and has innovated and produced many new products for the horticulture industry. Although the composting operation forms the foundation of Garden-Ville, many other services are available. Garden-Ville is headquarters for the organic grower and distributes many natural products such as bat guano from the Bracken Cave (the largest active bat cave in the world), rock mineral products, microbial active products and other natural soil conditioners and fertilizers.
With a rich tradition dating back to 1957, Garden-Ville offers solutions to organic gardening needs and is a renowned creator of premium organic garden products including fertilizers, compost, mulch, soils and organic weed killers. A strong belief in the principles of nature and a desire to educate the public about the environmental, economic and societal benefits of growing organic gardens and lawns fuels this company’s growth. Garden-Ville is a family-owned and operated Austin-based company with retail locations in Austin, San Marcos, Georgetown and San Antonio.
