TLDA Member Donates Land to Catholic Church Project

TLDA Member Kyndel Bennett’s family last week announced a public-private partnership between the family and the Catholic Church.

The Bonham Family, well-known citrus growers in the Rio Grande Valley, are donating 14 acres for a project run by the Diocese of Brownsville that will include a healthcare clinic, and education center, retail stores, a café, recreational sports such as soccer and volleyball, a community garden, a hiking and walking trail, a farming field school and a farmer’s market. A parameter trail, eight feet wide, uses guidelines developed by Texas Parks & Wildlife.

The development is to be called Plaza Amistad.  Read more from the Rio Grande Guardian.
