You can grow your own food. We can help.

Faith Community Garden

I recently found that I love to garden.  I started off just growing strawberries on my balcony, because as an apartment dweller my options were limited.  I began experimenting with other forms of container gardening and everyone knows that is gateway gardening.  I researched community gardens and found one in the genreal vicinity of my office.  I was put on a waiting list at Faith Community Garden here in Austin, Texas and about six months later a plot became available. Now, I hardly ever need to buy produce (just when I get tired of okra and turnips) and at the height of the seasons I have had plenty to give to the church's food pantry, to co-workers and salad greens for my roommate.  There is nothing more glorious than passing out Red Burgandy Okra like the...ugh...okra fairy?  Anyway, I would love to improve our garden with a couple pf upgrades...and can always use soil amendments (love that Texas Green Sand).
