Gardening + Class

So it's very exciting that the garden's set up! This Thursday we're going to have a quick class on the basics of vegetable gardening in Central Texas. Anyone can come whether or not they have a plot at the garden.

what: gardening + class
where: UT community garden, 2108 Concho St. 
when: Thursday March 3, 4-6 PM

We'll have all the supplies. And I'd like to point out that the site is easily accessible by the East Campus UT Shuttle, which connects well with the Forty Acres and West Campus shuttles.

Hope you can make it!

Endless thanks to Larry Maginnis from UT Landscaping, Jim Walker- UT's Sustainability Director, and Karen Blaney- the Campus Environmental Center's advisor, for all their help!
