ATTENTION NORTH SHOAL CREEK RESIDENTS—
You are all invited to the inauguration of our new North Shoal Creek Community Garden at 10 a.m. Saturday, April 14, northwest corner of the Pillow campus. Please come and celebrate!
October-March is tree planting season in Austin. While North Shoal Creek’s residential core has a pretty good tree canopy, overall our neighborhood needs more trees. If your yard can use one or more trees, you can probably get free ones from TreeFolks, a local non-profit that partners with the City of Austin to encourage tree planting and care.
There are two ways to get a free tree from TreeFolks:
- Sign up for their Tree Delivery service.
- call TreeFolks at
