Who are Master Gardeners?
The Master Gardener Plant Clinic is a traveling help desk with Travis County Master Gardeners available to answer gardening questions. Master Gardeners are volunteers for the Travis County Texas A&M AgriLife Extension service. In order to become a Master Gardener, each individual receives extensive horticultural training. Master Gardeners use their training and subsequent commitment for continuing education to help Austin area residents with their gardening questions.
At East Feast, the plant clinic will have educational activities for children (or those young at heart) that include building insect houses and learning where loofahs come from. Participants can also have their gardening questions answered by trained volunteers. You’ll find the Native and Adapted Landscape Plants Guide along with other timely Grow Green FAQ sheets. You can also pick up a copy of the Vegetable Garden Planting Guide and recommended Vegetable Varieties for Central Texas.
What is the Festival Beach Food Forest?
The Festival Beach Food Forest is an edible forest garden where visitors can openly forage and enjoy fresh food on the shores of Lady Bird Lake. The goal is to work with nature to set the conditions where people, the plants, and local animals can keep the system thriving over time. Using permaculture design and regenerative practices, the FBFF provides food, shade, and ecosystem services to its neighbors. Come enjoy the fruits, nuts, vegetables, and medicinal herbs that flourish in this fence-less community pilot project!
