A Passion for Plants: An East Austin Garden Fair will be in a new location this year on the last weekend of Spring Break. The theme of our fifth annual fair is Edible Landscaping. This FREE public gardening event will feature hands-on demonstrations of how to dig a garden bed, harvest rain water, grow fruits and vegetables organically, start plants from cuttings and seeds, and how to cut back on chemicals that harm our environment and ourselves. Come for the free advice from our on-site experts to answer all of your gardening questions, for tips on living healthier and happier, and for fun educational activities for kids to get them out in nature in your own back yard! Get ready for Spring with all the free information you need to start your own edible landscape, whether it’s one plant in a pot or a whole yard full, and enjoy eating healthier and being healthy!
Hosted by Texas AgriLife Extension Service, Travis County Master Gardeners Association, the Sustainable Food Center, and the Holistic Education and Health Network. Call the Texas AgriLife Extension Service at 854-9600 for more information.
