Program for May 10, 2016. Our program for May 10 will be “Soil amendments (e.g., compost, mulch, etc.) and inorganic materials (e.g., rock, sands, perlite, etc.) in the garden and lawn". This will be by Phil Gosh of "OrganicsByGosh". This will explain materials (compost, etc.), the timing and procedure for materials (e.g., compost) for gardens and lawns. Appropriate materials can be both water wise and fire wise. Some sample materials will be available for attendees.
2016 Plant and Book Sale and silent auction on April 1-2 2016 We had this sale event on Friday April 1 and Saturday April 2. This Plant Sale, Silent Auction, and Quilt Raffle will support the Bastrop Library summer children's activity and reading program. This was held in conjunction with the "Friends of the Library" annual book sale. We offered hard-to-find, Bastrop hardy perennials, shrubs, and succulents, along with vegetable starts. 100% of the proceeds will go to the Library’s summer reading program for kids. We raised $6,661 for the Library (even better than last year where we raised $5,300) at the event. Click here for more information. This is much appreciated by the Bastrop Library and the Friends of the Library to help support their programs.
Club Support of Bastrop Community
Our club has supported the Bastrop Library and Family Crisis Center. Click here for information on this important aspect of our club.
Lawn tractor donation to the Bastrop Family Crisis Center
Our club (with the support of Lowes) donated a lawn tractor to the Bastrop Family Crisis Center. This enables the Center to use in house resources to save on landscaping costs freeing up scarce funds to support their core mission of helping people in Bastrop County.
