Saturday October 1 – GARLAND COMMUNITY GARDEN EVENT—The Texas Wildflower Hill Build
You can come have fun with us in planting perhaps the tallest hugelkultur in Garland. Over the month of September we will be adding soil and compost to a brush heap of logs and twigs that has been growing for about two years. At the event we will pass out information on building hugelkulturs (a water-efficient way to garden). The mound will be seeded with milkweed and other Texas native wildflower seeds. This will become our “Texas Wildflower Hill. We hope you will return in the spring to admire your work.
