Gardopia began in 2015, to address health disparities in a high-crime corridor on the near Eastside of San Antonio. Initially funded with the Bryne grant through the San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA), Gardopia implemented Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) as a methodology for crime reduction. Working with SAHA, Gardopia became the Eastside's first Garden Utopia, where members of the community began growing their own food on an abandon lot.
Nearly a barbecue pit, Mr. and Mrs. G's teaches San Antonio a thing or two about home cooking. It may be the desserts, made every morning by Mrs. G, that account for the reported euphoria that comes after downing a plate of grub that is, honestly, lip-smackingly good. It's high-calorie, straight-up soul food - not a new take on or interpretation of the tasty stuff. Mr. and Mrs. G's is, was, and always will be a letter-perfect rendering of things fried and boiled: The vegetables are soft and watery - but flavored with bits of ham and onion; the meat can be fatty or smothered in gravy (How else could ham hocks and steak - in that order - be served?); and the choice of bread is a flaky biscuit or cornbread muffin. - John Brewer
