Last summer, as school was just around the bend, we got busy cleaning out the grade level beds at the Titan Gardens so grades cold start fresh in the fall for planting. But what to do wth all of the great plants? It just so happened that two girl scouts were working hard with the Travis County Master Gardeners to create a children’s garden at the Austin Children’s
Shelter. So we compared lists and happily donated whatever plants of ours could be used in their planned new garden.
I am happy to announce that the Children’s Garden project has won those two girl scouts the Gold Award, the highest award given by the organization. The chldren’s garden offers a wonderful environment for both mothers and their children to enjoy nature. So it should give us pride to know that our plant donations from the Titan Garden have found a new garden in which to pay a yet another part in chldren’s lives.
