|SFC’s GROW LOCAL|
|This fall’s Resource Give-Away Day will take place at the Baha’i Center, located at 2215 E M Franklin Ave, Austin, TX 78723, on Thursday, September 17th.
As usual, the event will be divided into two shifts.
Shift 1) 1:30-4pm
Shift 2) 4:30-7pm
Participants will not be able to take materials before or between shifts.
Please bring buckets, bags or a truck to transport your compost and a small container for fertilizer. We also recommend bringing cardboard boxes to transport plants as well as a shovel so that you do not have to wait in line to shovel compost.
Resource Give-Away Days depend on volunteers for their success. If you are interested in volunteering during the event, please call or email me by Friday, September 11th at 512-220-1083 or at email@example.com.

Please keep water hoses rolled up for the safety of fellow gardeners. This will prevent falls and as well, extends the life of the hose, which might otherwise be sliced by a lawn mower. Also, please do not leave water hoses running while you attend to other matters in the garden. Once distracted, this increases the likelihood of wasted water.
It takes a village to protect a garden! Hope you have a great weekend.
Hi FBCG Gardeners,
Work days are central to our garden’s success and critical to the communal areas. Work days are fun and a way to meet other gardeners. Working communal areas is a shared responsibility; when not completing 2 hours of labor for the month, the gardener must pay $20.
Please mark your calendars for the upcoming dates!
- September 12 – Communal Plot
- October 10- Orchard
- November 14 – Accessibility
- December 12 – Tea-ching Garden/ Herb
See you then.
A lot of work was accomplished this past Saturday, August 8. Thanks to everyone who came out. Special thanks to the Grapes and Berry Team for stepping in to lead this workday, due to last minute scheduling problems.
Need work hours for August? The following tasks need attention. Be sure and note your time worked in the binder:
- The front fence line around the grape and berry plants always needs weeding
- There are plants in the swale with pink flags that need weeding and mulching. Check with Alec to know if she needs them watered
- Clear weeds under trees and mulch the area
- Pull grape vines off trees in section B
- Help Julio in the community garden. He can probably suggest about two weeks worth of work.
