Thank you to all those who made it out to our previous wellness retreats! We greatly enjoyed the opportunity to educate and empower each and every one of you! Our upcoming retreat at the San Antonio Botanical Garden will feature guest speakers from Uprooted Gardens.
Chef Dave Terrazas will, once again, tantalize our taste buds with goodies from the garden and simplified recipes to impress! Hopefully we will have a bit nicer weather to take our yoga outdoors, in the presence of nature! Lastly, Dr. Harden will be presenting on health strategies for summer living!
About Uprooted Gardens
This business was formed in 2016 by Nick & Liz Campanella with the idea that everyone can grow something edible somewhere. We believe that with a little help and good soil, anyone can grow their own! Through a personal journey of gardening in South Texas, and volunteering in multiple organizations, the need for something like Uprooted Gardens was recognized by two green-thumbed, love birds. The both of them share a love for all things green and are overwhelmingly excited to share their passion for edible gardening with their hometown.
Chef Dave Terrazas is an El Paso, Texas native and a U.S. Air Force veteran. A strong advocate of volunteer public service, Dave joined the staff at Allen Academy, a Bryan, Texas-based private school following volunteer service in Moore, Oklahoma, where he spent a month as a volunteer chef representing the American Culinary Federation (ACF) and a nonprofit group called Mercy Chefs, cooking for tornado disaster relief workers and displaced residents of the area. At Allen Academy, Dave ran a food service program concurrently with a 1,500-square foot campus garden that served as an outdoor classroom and a resource for students to grow their own food for lunch service. Dave currently manages the garden’s fitness and culinary arts programming, to include programming for the Culinary Health Education for Families (CHEF) program, a partnership between Goldsbury Foundation, The Children’s Hospital of San Antonio, and its partners.
