“Thomas [Gromatzky] and Christina [Williams] have been working productively on a range of environmental projects from air quality to endangered species protecti...on and they are excelling as young professionals. They have proven capable in the office and performing remote field work. Our staff has been impressed at how they have instinctively worked as a team to handle larger assignments and how quickly they “get up to speed” with unfamiliar subjects. The short time we have had Thomas and Christina has already been a strong value-added to our mission at Travis County and we look forward to having them the rest of the summer.”

-Mickey Roberts, Environmental Specialist Senior, Travis County Natural Resources and Environmental Quality

This is a call for volunteers for Southwestern University's Community Garden!

The garden has an important event coming up that could impact the funding and future of the garden for years to come, so it is essential that we have it spick and span in order to impress.

Leading up to this event, the garden will have work sessions everyday under a certain theme. This way, everyone will be able to at least find one time that works with their schedule, or one task that speaks to the...m.

Monday: 5-7 P.M., come work on the pollinator garden and put some transplants in the ground
Tuesday: 9:30-11 A.M., come help work on the outdoor classroom space and paint (artists needed)!
Tuesday: 5-7 P.M., come learn the ancient Cob building technique with Ben Galindo and make some raised garden beds
Wednesday: 5-7 P.M., continue the Cob building and help transport soil and mulch to the new beds
Thursday: 5-7 P.M. help prepare for our movie event by raking and clearing out beds
Thursday: 7-9 P.M. come eat FREE BURGERS with veggie/vegan options, and watch the original Ghostbusters
Friday: 5-7 P.M., come help us finish painting and aesthetic work
Saturday, 9-12 A.M., come finish up all of our projects; there WILL be donuts!

I know this seems like a lot, but we need all of the help we can get to make sure our garden maintains its position as an essential part of our campus community.

As always, remember to wear closed toed shoes, bring a hat and a water bottle, and BRING YOUR FRIENDS!
