The El Paso Zoo is expanding and growing as they reveal a new African Eco Garden this Saturday, May 14, 2016.

The new sustainable garden brings awareness to conservation and sustainability in the community while providing crops for animal enrichment. The Eco Garden is made up of six keyhole gardens which were first made popular in Africa, keyhole gardens hold moisture and nutrients due to an active compost pile placed in the center of a round bed.

The Eco Garden was created and tended by the women of the Junior League of El Paso. The crops raised in the garden will help feed the animals as part of their enrichment program.

Everyone is invited to the ribbon cutting and dedication ceremony on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
