This has ended. If you attended, let the organizer know by recording your Impact!


We will be out at the teaching gardens every Saturday from 9:15 - 11 a.m. tending to the veggie beds! The garden gate opens at 9 am so we needed to shift the start time to 9:15.

SAFETY: Bring water, gloves and your favorite weeding tool. We will have some tools on hand to share. 
VOLUNTEER PARKING: Drive through paved parking lots, past the public restroom, and then through the orange cones down a mulched road, past picnic tables. Park by the green house and white shed on the left, you should see other cars parked there. 
ENTRANCE: Enter through the back gate at ZBG. Tell the attendant you are volunteering in the Austin Organic Gardens and there will be no charge to enter.
TEACHING GARDEN LOCATION: The garden beds are in the Pioneer Village next to the red Blacksmith Shop. MAP

There is rain in the forecast for tomorrow so the workday is cancelled. We are still looking for volunteers to help out with the Fall Plant Fundraiser on the 29th and 30th. You can sign-up here.
