Homewood Heights Community Garden
The only non-plot-based neighborhood garden in Austin
September 2008 - Present
Workday Supervisor (2011) and Membership Coordinator (2013 - Present)
Our neighborhood garden is the only truly community gardens in Austin in the sense that we don't run our garden on a plot-by-plot basis. Instead, everyone is responsible for taking care of the garden equally. We have about ten neighbors who comprise the core group of gardeners season to season, and we have another 4-6 neighbors whose participation fluctuates depending on availability.
In addition to bi-monthly workdays, we also have regular potluck dinners and other special events at our garden, which has led to our garden being the hub of the neighborhood and our community.
