SAN ANTONIO — Free apple, apricot, avocado, orange, peach AND pecan trees... What could be better to start off 2022?
Those are the options this weekend available to anyone in San Antonio. The San Antonio Parks and Recreation Department is hosting the drive-thru event called "JAMMIN’ JAMS - Fruit and Nut Tree Adoption" at 8 a.m. on Saturday, January 29 at Nelson Wolff Stadium, located at 5757 US-90 West.
It's the first of four opportunities sponsored by the city to take home a free tree. There are 600 fruit and nut trees up for grabs.
All events will begin at 8 a.m. and end at 12 p.m. or while supplies last. The first event is a drive-thru, so it translates to one tree per vehicle, the city said.
"These events are great! I got 3 trees from these events and they are happy and thriving since 2020," Christin Deckert commented on the post.
