Look at those beautiful babies! They are just begging to be planted. By YOU. And YOUR FAMILY.
What – Planting (duh, pay attention, please), community, children playing on the onsite playground, Joy and Happiness for all
When – Tomorrow, September 14th (unless it is no longer the 13th when you read this, in which case I have no idea how the 14th relates to what day it is for you) 9 am until done (this wont take long – 10, 10:30 at the latest)
Where – Our garden at Ye Olde Holy Trinity Site – 1702 Woodland Avenue Austin, TX 78741 (garden is on the back side of the portable buildings to the northwest of the parking lot, or park on Sylvan Dr. and you will see the garden and playground)
Why – Service, community, fellowship, other churchy words
What we don’t have – bathrooms, mostly.
To be followed by brunch. We will decide that location after planting, I guess.
Some brief thoughts, impressions and stories shared with me from the garden build –
“I practiced with a mattock for two months before showing up and it really payed off. I didn’t have time to work on my raking and I think that was evident. Maybe next time.” – Bob Smith
“So, wait, are tomatoes a fruit or a vegetable?” – Sally Jones
“I finally learned which end of the shovel to hold! Who knew?” – Bob Jones
“It was awesome. I didn’t want to go home. I felt like Peter on the mountain top – you know, the three tents and all. But that just didn’t seem reasonable so we all had a pizza buffet and called it a night.” – Sally Smith
Thanks for sharing, Bob, Sally, Bob and Sally!
(OK. No one had any anecdotes, so I made that stuff up. It seemed necessary at the time.)
