Pocket Prairie Service Project at Sunshine Community Garden
November 11, 2023 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Austin Cosmopolitan Rotary Club is partnering with Sunshine Community Garden to install a “pocket prairie” on Saturday, Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. – noon. Volunteers (who can sign up here) will replace sections of Bermuda grass in the garden with Texas wildflowers and other native plants that serve as habitat and food for local pollinator species. This aligns with the seventh of Rotary International’s Causes, Protecting the Environment.
Saturday, November 11 entails the first phase of the project which will include the removal of the Bermuda grass and preparing the soil for planting. We are seeking 12 volunteers on this day. Volunteers are encouraged to wear appropriate clothing and bring work gloves, water, and sunscreen. (In the event of inclement weather, the project will be postponed to a later date.)
