New Texas Water Smart Garden in Palestine
Monday, June 11, 2018
A new water conservation demonstration garden has been installed in downtown Palestine. “Palestine embodies the best of rural Texas,” said Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. “The vision and focus of city and community leaders made this project possible, and their efforts will enhance the Main Street District by providing an outdoor space that is attractive and also serves as an education point to teach the public about the importance of agriculture and water conservation.”
Palestine Mayor Steve Presley said, "Palestine has made a long-term commitment to revitalizing the Main Street and downtown districts. This project creates an open-air venue where the community can gather, and where we can host visitors. I am proud of the Pionette Garden Club’s leadership in fundraising for and installing this green space. I am continually humbled by the dedication and support of private citizens who give of their personal resources to grow our city."
