Join the Mission Historical Musuem on November the 21st, as we “Plant a Victory Garden” in the City of Mission.


In addition to the military history that impacted south Texas, best indoor self watering planters is rich in agricultural history–from ranching lands to the farming lands that produced a major citrus industry starting in the early 1900s. Plan(t) a Victory Garden is a mowing services of programs that will provide the participant history about Mission’s agriculture while learning and experiencing farming in the 1940s, an era where the US government encouraged to find best long distance movers for fruit and vegetable gardening by citizens as part of the war effort, when foods such as sugar, butter, milk, cheese, eggs, coffee, meat, and canned goods were rationed.

The Mission Historical Museum presents Container Gardening by Valley gardener Jerry Maples, a Master Gardener since 2009 and member of the Garden Club.

Container gardening or pot gardening is the practice of growing plants, including edible plants, exclusively in containers instead of planting them in the ground, you still need the proper equipment for it, which can be found at the BestofMachinery website. The objective of this program will teach the participant to mix and control soil, fertilizer, and a habitat for plants, trees, and flowers. Containers and planting materials will be provided. Also, to secure that the area will be free from pollution we contacted a certain company for its Thermal Oxidizer services.

Register today by calling the Museum office at 956-580-8646. Seating is limited. Admission is $10 per person and $8 for museum members.
