Ready to garden?

I'm back from Peru. It was wonderful - energizing, relaxing, and winter - everything a person from Texas could want in a summer vacation. But now it is over, and it is time to garden. Because as we move into fall, plants are less likely to die, and that's exciting.

So in celebration, and preparation for our inaugural Garden Posse guerrilla gardener mission, we're having a planning meeting this Tuesday at 7:30 pm. We'll be looking at the site and deciding on our plan of attack (ambush, maybe?). Meaning, we'll assess what the land needs, what sorts of plants we should plant, logistics, and all that. There will also be some discussion about other possible directives of the Garden Posse, like visiting and helping in members' gardens.

We'll meet at Foodheads, which is across the street from the potential site. Foodheads is a sandwich shop at 616 W 34th St, Austin, TX 78705, near the intersection of 34th and Guadelupe. Foodheads will be closed but they have some picnic tables there, and if we need to use the internet there's a coffeeshop close by.

The planning meeting is definitely not mandatory for participation in the guerrilla aspect of the Garden Posse. But it would be really great to meet everyone and start collaborating with ideas.

I would be grateful if you responded via email or comment if you know you'll make it on Tuesday. Hope to see you then!
