Description

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 100 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.

For the It's My Park event, we'll be clearing a main path between the tool shed and rain garden/ swale.  Tasks include removing weeds from the path, leveling a berm along one side of the path, and adding granite to the path.  Other tasks will include path maintenance in other areas of the garden, removing invasives (poison ivy) along the fence line, and mulching trees.  The path work will be in support of work being done through the City's Neighbor Partnering Program.  The goal of the grant is to help create a more accessible garden for those with mobility disabilities.
