Getting into the Garden Gala Groove…

Oh my goodness! The 2015-2016 school year has been a time of explosive growth both in our garden and as an organization.

Clockwise from top left: (1)Alfaro’s Kinder Class adds a Scarecrow to protect our growth; (2) chard and kale growing tall in Champion’s 4th grade space; (3) Our rogue squash giving us  unexpected harvest; (4) Chocolate cherry tomato production kicking up in Pylant’s 2nd grade class; (5) One of many romanesco cauliflower heads from Sanz Blanco’s 1st grade plot.

In fact we are so impressed with everything our Bobcats have done under the guidance of our top notch volunteers it seemed like it would be a travesty not to invite all of our supporters in to nibble on greens and admire our progress. So……

 

Please join us for an evening of fun on Friday May 13, 2016 as we celebrate all that our Bobcats have grown in our own unique Green Classroom! Get down to some of our favorite Bobcat entertainment acts and snag a taco from Cool Beans eatery  and Thai Fresh while you get crafty at our maker stations or get hip on how to turn your kitchen scraps into black gold via vermicomposting. Its the Global Worming Movement, y’all.

Umami what? 

Our Bobcat Top Chef contestants will show off all they have learned this year on balancing the five basic tastes at the highlight of our Gala. The competitors have been honing their skills with training by their fantastic 3rd grade teacher and slow cooking advocate Monica Champions…and an abundance of patience exhibited from their families as they leave kitchens in a state of explosion from whipping  up concoctions in practice for the final event. Thanks guys. We can’t wait to see how they wow our judging panel led by our own Principal, Valerie Borchers. 

 

Excitement too much to contain? 

Us too! Put all that energy to good use and volunteer here: 

Everything we do is via our amazing community  of volunteers and donations. Thanks to those of you that are supporting us.

 

We couldn’t do it without you.

We have the best community!

We timidly reached out to our surrounding Austin community and the support given has been uplifting. We can’t say thank you enough to our sponsors.
