Description
The Festival Beach Community Garden is 2-acres of property at the corner of Waller and Clermont Streets in East Austin, divided into affordable garden plots and community spaces. Since opening in April 2010, our garden has grown to include more than 80 gardeners growing a variety of fruits, vegetables, flowers and plants. The site provides communal tools, irrigation and a space for educational and community events. Our planning committees are volunteer-driven, made up of gardeners and community members.

Among the many projects at the garden, we will need volunteers to help with plots and gardening beds. We also need help with weeding and clearing paths.
We will also be working at the RBJ with gardening work as well. There are many other things to do as well such as mulching an orchard, swale, rain garden, and habitat areas.
