4/7/2012 @ 9:30AM-1PM: Trowel & Error

$5 admission fee. Mayfield Park will once again host Trowel & Error, the Spring event that annually attracts gardeners from all over Central Texas to hear experts give time-tested tips for beautiful gardens. Although lectures begin at 10:00, the event “opens” at 9:30 for those early birds who want to stroll the garden paths in early morning peacefulness.

Sponsored by Friends of the Parks of Austin, Trowel & Error will feature Trisha Shirey, director of flora and fauna, Lake Austin Spa, lecturing on The Organic Arsenal—Pest Control for the Organic Garden, Carolyn Williams, master gardener, talking about her current project, Creating a Hoe-Down Heritage Garden , and Eric Pedley, succulent specialist, showing how Propagating Succulents is Easy and Fun. Not to be missed will be the legendary raffle of “garden goodies”. Everyone goes home a winner! It’s a wonderful way, rain or shine, to spend a morning learning how to add color into your landscape while relaxing among gregarious peafowl, towering palms, flowering trees, and ponds filled with lilies.
