There are two upcoming gardening related events that I’m interested in.   The Sustainable Food Center,  in collaboration with the Coalition of Austin Community Gardens and the Congress for New Urbanism, is hosting the Second Annual Austin Community Garden Tour, and first-ever Community Gardening in Austin: A Panel Discussion & Local Food Potluck, both of which will take place Sunday, May 1st. 

The Second Annual Austin Community Garden Tour, to take place May 1st from 10am – 4pm. The Community Garden Tour is a free, open house-style tour providing the opportunity to visit each of these unique places, talk to the gardeners there, learn how to get involved, and maybe even get inspired to start your own.  Join in celebration of these community spaces for locally grown (and self-grown!) food in Austin . A downloadable/printable map of participating community gardens and additional details will be available here<http://communitygardensaustin.org/?page_id=605>

Following the tour, there will be  Community Gardening in Austin: A Panel Discussion and Local Food Potluck from 6 – 8:30 pm at 5604 Manor (home of the Workers Defense Project, the Third Coast Workers for Cooperation, and Third Coast Activist Resource Center ).  Speakers will share information about the current landscape of community gardening in Austin , the work they are doing to make Austin a more community garden-friendly city, and what you can do to get involved. Bring a dish made with locally grown food, as well as your own reusable plate and utensils, and join in the celebration!
