We did the work. Now it's time to celebrate.

You may recall our involvement with the legal planting of the median at Rosewood and Chicon, back on July 10. Let me tell you about July 10. It was hot. We got to the median around 9 am, and worked spreading soil and compost, grading the landscape, planting over a hundred plants, and finishing it off with a layer of glass mulch, until after 3 pm. And let me tell you about 3 pm on July 10 in Austin, Texas. It was hot. We were sunburned. We were tired. At least one of us had been attacked by ants. But we had accomplished something - the planting of a median that took years (years!) to plan. (To see photos of the median, check out this Flickr set.)

So now, we party.

Wait. First we go back and weed. Then, we party.

This Saturday, August 14, starting at nine and continuing to noon you can volunteer to weed, water, and mulch the median.

On Sunday, August 15, the fun begins at 7 pm with stories and skits based on the experiences of the neighborhood, at the New Movement Theater. A reception will follow with a TRIANGLE CAKE! Delicious and appropriate.
