Join the Patterson Park Community Garden task force for a work day on Saturday, May 14 to map out the grid lines for the garden plots and set temporary posts marking the garden perimeter.
Under the auspices of Sustainable Food Center, the task force has just signed a license agreement with the City of Austin so that we can move forward with our construction of the garden. The work will proceed in phases, and the next step is to have the irrigation work for our water supply completed by the end of May. That will be followed by fence and gate work in June. This outlook is dependent on completing our negotiations with irrigation and fence contractors and, of course, on the weather. For updates and to RSVP, visit the Facebook event page.
There are still a few of our 66 plots available for anyone who might be interested in gardening with us. For more details, please contact Mark Smolen.
