Cherry Creek Community Garden5618 Bayton Loop78745Frankie HefleyCherryCreekGardens@gmail.comIn 2010, FEMA gave a grant to the City of Austin to buy out a portion of a South Austin neighborhood with an extensive history of flooding. The houses in this section of the neighborhood were razed. The remaining neighbors worked in conjunction with the City of Austin to create the Cherry Creek Community Garden on a portion of this land in an effort to bring the South Austin community together. Working together, the neighborhood and City of Austin have begun to transform the area surrounding the garden into a wildflower and native species preserve. The City has created a mulched walking trail that winds along Williamson Creek and is orchestrating riparian efforts in that same space.244'x8,' 4'x12,' 4'x16'2010$10/season plus plot fee (size dependent)9am-11am3rd SaturdaysShovels, hoes, orange oilOutdoor meeting space, 25' table made from salvaged wood from 2011 Bastrop fires available for reservationGarden Information: *Name: Cherry Creek Community Garden *Address: 5618 Bayton Loop, 78745 *Contact Person/Phone: Frankie Hefley, CherryCreekGardens@gmail.com *: *Website:https://cherrycreekgarden.com/ *# Plots: 24 *Plot Size: 4'x8,' 4'x12,' 4'x16' *Start Date: 2010 *Plot Rental: $10/season plus plot fee (size dependent) *Work Hours: 9am-11am *Work Days: 3rd Saturdays *Wishlist : Shovels, hoes, orange oil https://cherrycreekgarden.com/City of Austin Watershed

Third Day Community Garden at The Sanctuary Church2614 Exposition Blvd.78703sanctuaryaustin@gmail.comWhile 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.
