I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who's contributed to this project! The garden is really coming together. First plantings are really starting to establish, and little seedlings are coming up left and right. We will be getting a tool shed and rainwater harvesting system built within the coming weeks, thanks to financial contributions from the National Wildlife Federation's Campus Ecology Fellowship and the Texas Parents Student Enrichment Awards. Getting the tool shed on site will really be a significant step in the garden's establishment, as tools and supplies will finally be able to be conveniently located on-site for participants to use. 

This nasturtium plant in one of the demonstration beds is really pretty! 
These onions seem to grow an inch every day. 

Our peach tree is blossoming and is growing its leaves back! 
It's so exciting to see seeds sprouting, like this calypso bean plant. 
We got some new perennials planted in our community-maintained garden, like this salvia. 
The kids over at the UT Child Development Center made us this awesome sign! The kids have a garden plot of their own where they've planted some seeds, and have been helping with watering the garden every week!

At our worktimes this week we'll have a lot going on, including planting, weeding (that grass is already coming through!), landscaping, and building a couple more planting beds.  Hope you can come help out!
