34 & Guadelupe: Redux

Tomorrow night, at 7:30 pm, we'll be back where it all began: The garden at 34th & Guadelupe, across from Salvation Pizza.

This garden needs some sprucing up. We'll be cleaning up the trash that has accumulated around the garden (exciting, I know, but necessary), weeding the flowers (which are really doing quite well), and replanting the vegetable garden with new winter transplants and seeds. I am especially excited about a climbing spinach plant I found last week.

The area could also use a sign, informing people about what the garden is and how to use it. From my experience taking care of the garden for the past two months, it could have much more potential for the community if explained, and maybe people would stop dropping their trash and SAT prep books there.

Also, we'll be joined by a student journalist from UT who is writing a story about guerrilla gardening for the Daily Texan. And don't forget - there is beer and pizza across the street!

Hope to see you there.
