Special Meeting - North by North Central Garden Tour!
The North Austin Coalition of Neighborhoods and the North Austin Community School Alliance
will be having our first ever North by North Central Garden Tour for North Austin in June 2013!
We are inviting our sister neighborhoods from 78757, and also Substainable Neighborhoods, to join us in this. All the proceeds for this event will used by the School Alliance for beautification projects for our schools in October 2013.
We have several goals:
1. To show our support of the awesome things our schools are doing, by giving our schools some much needed love and TLC.
2. To create a fun way for those in our our community to connect with and engage with students and teachers.
3. To create pride and ownership among our students.
We also have a tall order on our wish list. We need demo native/xeriscape/rain gardens at the north end of town. Many of our schools have landscaping that is not at all appropriate for the current climate changes.We are hoping we can raise enough interest among Austin's master gardeners/landscape professionals to get some help in creating some projects that will
meet both needs.
We are going to have our first meeting about this project on June 28th, at 6:30-8:30 at Poke-e-jo's at Lamplight/Parmer. Please come if you want to see a garden tour for our end of town and please spread the word - thank you!
