◾ Experienced and Master Gardeners available to help us learn all we need to know to grow our own
healthy food
◾Rain barrel on site to help supplement watering
◾End-of-the-season, onsite demonstrations to help us learn how to make the most of our produce:
Recipes, canning, freezing, ...they may even teach us how to make their award-winning salsa!

All this is free of charge!
Note: if you want a wicking bed there is a one time fee of $28.00. The nice thing about the wicking bed
Is that you will only need to water your plot every two weeks.

It will be your garden, your produce and your weeds! We will all be tending our own garden plots, so
you might consider signing up with a friend! If you’d like to have a garden this year, or just want more

Third Day Community Garden at The Sanctuary Church2614 Exposition Blvd.
Austin, TX
78703Contact Personsanctuaryaustin@gmail.comThe Idea

How can a small group of people with limited resources build and expand community in a divided world, help those less fortunate, and care for the physical world around us? That’s a question, scratch that, it’s THE question three congregations have been wrestling with together for over 2 years. University Baptist Church, Journey Imperfect Faith Community and The Sanctuary believe The Third Day Community Garden is a big part of the answer to that question.

The Vision

Imagine:

Families and Individuals gathering to grow healthy food to share and enjoy regardless of how “green” their thumbs are.
Children learning where their food comes from and how to grow it from expert gardners.
10% of all food grown supporting those who need a boost.
Shared meals in a beautiful garden with new friends.
It’s not a Utopian hope, it’s all part of the vision of the Third Day Community Garden.

The Name

While the garden is not understood to be a work of people of any particular faith, or any faith for that matter, it was originated by three faith communities with a shared faith story. That story begins, fittingly enough, in a garden. The third day was the day, according to the story, when all things which grow from seeds were created. Later in the story, the third day became the day of resurrection. All three congregations understand resurrection to be more than a “pie-in-the-sky” idea, but a work of re-creation here, now, in the real world. Part of our plan for re-creating community in a divided world, re-creating nutrition in a fast-food world, and re-creating nourishment in world where some go hungry is The Third Day Community Garden.

How it Works

Families and Individuals will lease 4’x8′ raised bed garden plots for a reasonable fee on an annual or semi-annual basis.
Using organic gardening principals each gardener will be responsible for their own garden.
Instruction will be available for beginners or those looking to hone their skills. There will even be a special area of the garden for children to work and learn.
Gardeners will contribute 10% of all their crops to the Micah 6 Food Pantry or God’s Family Dinner by placing them in convenient containers on site at the garden.
Community meals, work days, and events will be held periodically for garden maintenance and community involvement.

The garden consists of 15 individual plots, 3 demonstration plots, and 6 plots for UT student/staff organizations. We also have 5 fruit trees planted at the garden, including peach, plum, asian pear, and 2 gala apples. We hope to generate an ample supply of produce for individual consumption, UT dining halls, a partner local food shelter, and in the future, to supply an on-campus farmer's market. We also hope that the garden will become a vibrant resource for our campus and city communities where participants can learn and share knowledge about gardening and food production, gain awareness of the many issues surrounding food, society, and the environment, propose and pursue interesting and progressive projects, and have fun at free classes and events.15+ individual plots; 6 organization plots; 3 demonstration plots; plus additional landscaped areas individual and demo plots are 4'x8'; organization plots are 10'x10'; UT dining hall plots are 4'x16'March 2011$10/semester (Fall, Spring, Summer) for individuals 4x4 plots; $15/semester for individual 4x12 with accompanying contract; $25/semester for organizations with accompanying contract 1 hour/monthThursdays 4-6 PM; Sundays 9 AM-12 PM picnic table; tools of all kinds; landscaping rocks; outdoor furnitureChairs, tables, electricityGarden Information: *Name: University of Texas/Concho Community Garden *Address: 2108 Concho St. Austin, TX, 78722 *Contact Person/Phone: Garden Committee, Garden Committee <gardening@utenvironment.org> *: *Website: *# Plots: 15+ individual plots; 6 organization plots; 3 demonstration plots; plus additional landscaped areas *Plot Size: individual and demo plots are 4'x8'; organization plots are 10'x10'; UT dining hall plots are 4'x16' *Start Date: March 2011 *Plot Rental: $10/semester (Fall, Spring, Summer) for individuals 4x4 plots; $15/semester for individual 4x12 with accompanying contract; $25/semester for organizations with accompanying contract *Work Hours: 1 hour/month *Work Days: Thursdays 4-6 PM; Sundays 9 AM-12 PM *Wishlist : picnic table; tools of all kinds; landscaping rocks; outdoor furniture University of Texas
