Another feature at Zilker Garden Festival is Kid's Corner which is sponsored by the Western Trails Garden Club. They always need small starter plants to give to the kids so if you like to plant seeds (flowers, veggies, herbs, cuttings from existing plants, etc.) please bring them to the festival and donate them to the Kid's Corner area. Even if it is Sunday afternoon when you come - they will still need some small plants to give away to the kids.

There are also still quite a few volunteer opportunities available and they are described at the Signup Genius (click on the different tabs to see which volunteer jobs are still open)

The Texas Bamboo Society will meet at the Taniguchi Japanese Garden on Saturday, April 15, 2017 - 9:30am - noon (weather permitting) at Zilker Botanical Garden, Austin, Texas. Bring a saw, loppers, gloves, and bungies or cord if you would like to take some bamboo poles home in exchange for your labor as we will be meeting in the bamboo grove and doing a little bamboo maintenance while we are there.
