East Austin Garden Fair: A Passion for Plants

There's a lot going on this weekend, but I would like to invite you (if you're in the Central Texas area) to some buggy things I have going on.

First, there's the 6th Annual East Austin Garden Fair.  I'll have a booth to discuss "good" bugs and "bad" bugs, so bring samples and/ or your questions.  Here's the skinny on the details:

10AM- 2PM
Zaragoza Recreation Center- 2608 E. Gonzales Street, Austin, TX

Texas AgriLife Extension Service and the City of Austin are partnering to present the East Austin Garden Fair.  This year's theme is "Grow Well- Grow Your Own", offering lots of information on creating your own garden space.  Informational and activity booths will be offered for adults and children on various topics such as composting, rainwater harvesting, school gardens, insects (including pests), nutrition and exercise to name a few.  Information will be available in both English & Spanish.  Attendees will be eligible for a free plant.

The event is open to the public and parking & admission are free.

Another place you can catch me is at the Austin Tenant's Council Housing Fair.  I will be talking about bed bugs.  This one you need to go online and register for the talk.  Here are the details for the housing fair:

Update on the boy:

I hope that everyone had  a great Easter.  We took it easy at our house, but the boy had a great time!  Please notice that the all important cars were in the basket and eggs hidden in the car wash....
