Saturday, Sept. 20 - Volunteer for Garden Fun at Blackshear's Yellow Jacket Garden
Blackshear Bridge invites Volunteers for Blackshear Elementary's school gardening enrichment program, which teaches kids about sustainability, nutrition, and gardening. Here are some ways you can participate --
Garden Day at Blackshear on Saturday, Sept. 20 9 AM - Noon. Attend Sustainable Food Center's School Garden Leadership Training hosted by Blackshear at 1712 E. 11th St. Register by emailing Katie@sustainablefoodcenter.org. Or...same day, 10 AM - Noon. Prepare the children's garden area with friends of Yellow Jacket Garden and the East Side Compost Peddlers. The Compost Peddlers are a bike-powered community composting program that collects organic waste from Austin homes and businesses and cycles it to nearby gardens to help grow more food. You can help Compost Peddlers build a Compost System at Blackshear. And enjoy a pizza party at noon -- Thanks East Side Pies!
PS Yellow Jackets are good – they play well with others, stick together and eat mosquitos. Thanks, Yellow Jackets!
