Our neighbors and friends put in nearly 500 hours of labor to create our neighborhood community garden. Through this process, by building this garden piece by piece, and by hand, we are closer than ever as a community and neighborhood.
It’s never too late to get involved with the community garden. We are looking for anyone interested in a leadership role to assist with compost operations, volunteer outreach, fundraising, and more. Almost any skill set comes in handy when building and operating a project of this size. If you’re interested in helping out, have questions or suggestions, or want to sign up for a plot, e-mail gardenchair [at] nscna [dot] org.
NSCNA thanks the Austin Parks Foundation for awarding us a Community Grant to build a community garden. We also thank the Sustainable Food Center of Austin for partnering with us on our project, and the City of Austin’s Sustainable Urban Agriculture and Community Garden Program (SUACG) for their help and support.
Between the bonds we’ve forged and the garden we’ve built, we’ll be “growing together” for years to come!
