NORTH SHOAL CREEK COMMUNITY GARDEN TOUR THURSDAY, NOV. 8, 2-4 P.M.

REMINDER: NORTH SHOAL CREEK COMMUNITY GARDEN TOUR
NOV. 8, 2-4 PM

Our North Shoal Creek Community Garden has been selected as part of Austin Design Week 2018. The event/tour takes place on Thursday, November 8, from 2 to 4 p.m.

Using design thinking, our neighborhood identified a community need and came together to create a space to foster the neighborhood’s identity, encourage neighbors to gather socially, engage with the land through gardening, and provide educational opportunities to the students at Pillow Elementary.

At this event, facilitators Sarah Brandon and Jennifer Noinaj we will share a brief history and background of the neighborhood’s community garden, highlighting how we solicited community input, how design was involved, and how we worked with the city on this project. We’ll walk through the garden itself and leave you with some lessons that we learned, ways we are giving back with this project, and ideas on where and how you can start designing for your own community.
