The Sustainable Food Center, umbrella organization of Festival Beach Community Garden and sponsor of our Serafina plot there, held their spring resource give away day March 4.
The SFC gives high quality compost, vegetable and herb plants , fertilizer , seeds and has plenty of educational materials for new-er and old-er gardeners.
If you’re in the Austin area, get in touch with the SFC and find out about their give aways, classes (even cooking classes) and all their activities.
Busy, busy week. March 5 was It’s My Park Day, and we had a bunch of activities in both Festival Beach Community Garden and Festival Beach Food Forest.
Volunteers showed up to tidy up the garden and the food forest, Dr Steve Ross’ architecture class from UT is working a new, more accessible path in the garden, the city of Austin gave away fruit trees to neighbors and we held a plant sale to benefit the garden. Whew!
Thanks to all gardeners, food forest peeps and volunteers!
East Side College Prep sent us their cheerleading squad! They held an arts and crafts class featuring bracelet making. At the end, they gave us a cheerleading performance, including a custom “RBJ Cheer” and a vocal performance by Ashley Sosa.
East Side College Prep and their parent organization, Southwest Key programs, have had a years long relationship with RBJ and with the Serafina organization.
Thanks to both for sending us these wonderful activities our way!
