See how our garden grows. Volunteer Saturday, February 23, 9:00 - 1:00, to help Travis High School students build a pond, plant fruit trees, mulch and finish earthworks. Learn from permaculture experts and work along side students to revitalize and beautify an unused space. We need volunteers to dig, haul mulch, plant and solarize the ground.

Some tools will be available, but please bring a steel rake, wheel barrow, shovel, hoe, or a pick ax if you have them. Wear gloves, clothes and shoes for working in the dirt!

The 2nd of a series of permablitzes throughout central Texas by Kirby Fry. As of now, he has planned out 6 of these all together. We are intermixing private and public locations, to spread the love throughout the entire community, for these increasingly bountiful and ever providing foodscapes.

The first one, at The Austin Eco School, was an enormous success. I'm sure you all can't wait to get started on the 2nd one!

Kurtis and Linda Colonna will be hosting this permablitz.

CASA Volunteer Open House & Dinner

Date: 

Tue, 02/05/2013 - 6:00pm to 7:30pm

 

CASA of Travis County speaks up for children who’ve been abused or neglected by empowering our community to volunteer as advocates for them in the court system. When the state steps in to protect a child’s safety, a judge appoints a trained CASA volunteer to make independent and informed recommendations in the child’s best interest. CASA volunteers come from every walk of life and share a commitment to improving children’s lives, a willingness to learn, and an open mind towards life experiences different from their own.
