San Antonio College is a public community college which provides for and supports the educational and lifelong learning needs of a multicultural community. As a leader in education, San Antonio College is committed to excellence in helping students reach their full potential by developing their academic competencies, critical thinking skills, communication proficiency, civic responsibility, and global awareness. The college's mission of reaching out into the surrounding community is supported by the EcoCentro sustainability outreach center which promotes strategies for urban sustainability.
What is EcoCentro?
EcoCentro is an urban sustainability outreach center dedicated to providing residents of San Antonio with the resources and information they need to be greener, save money, and live more sustainable and comfortable lives. We believe in both the ability of people to help themselves and the importance of a strong network of organizations dedicated to San Antonio’s healthy, sustainable future.
To the public, EcoCentro offers frequent free information sessions, workshops, demonstrations, and exhibits related to urban sustainability. In addition, the center hosts fee-based job skills courses that prepare students for employment in “green” career fields. The adjacent community garden will offer garden beds for community residents and serve as a demonstration center for gardening, agriculture, and soil enrichment projects done by San Antonio College students.
