Conquering the invasive cesspool - tonight!

Tonight, at 7:30pm, we'll be back at 1st and Annie, at the Cesar Chavez mural in South Austin. Last week we did quite a job on the "cesspool" of invasive plants at the base of the mural. We tore out the china berries and other bad trees with a weed wrench. It made us feel tough. But there is still much work to be done in terms of pulling out and cleaning up the scraggly grasses, which have probably left their seeds behind in the dirt.

We want to get the area as cleaned up as possible. Then we have sunflower seeds and an agave to plant, plus seed bombs. We also have the makings for a garden sign. And there is a plan to get the mulch in at the other mural.

We hope you'll join us - bring any tools you might have to pull up grass and do some planting. Flashlights are good, too!
