The Parks and Recreation Department will celebrate the opening of the Heritage Community Garden, 2100 Hutto Road, with a garden party at 9 a.m. June 16.
The event will feature the unveiling of a new mural by local artists Josh Eller and Emma Gottschalk on the garden’s cistern, as well as booths from local nature-related organizations. Light refreshments will also be provided.
The renovated community garden features 25 in-ground garden beds, 48 raised beds, and eight ADA-accessible beds, which are open for gardeners to begin planting flowers, vegetables, and fruit. Garden beds are available by reservation only, which may be renewed annually.
The garden will be open daily for gardeners from 5 a.m. to 10 p.m. The garden area is secured with a chain-link fence.
Other renovations to the community garden include a new restroom facility, concrete sidewalks, a lighted parking lot, and a dumpster with a designated area for green waste that will be recycled offsite.
The City has also partnered with the Williamson County Beekeepers Association, and hives will be constructed onsite in a separate area.
