90s Garden Party w/ TFOP Young Adults
Throw on your 90s outfits and join The Young Adults of the VESTED Ministry as we help maintain the Westbury Community Garden. We’ll be doing all types of gardening: orchard maintenance, turning and sifting compost, butterfly garden maintenance, pocket prairie maintenance and/or planting, and other garden tasks. A Release Form is required for each volunteer. Those under 18 years of age will need a parent's signature on the form. Forms will be available at Wednesday Night Bible studies at FountainLife Center and on-site the day of. Requests/Suggestions for volunteers' safety and comfort: Do not leave valuables in your car. We'll have a large dispenser of ice water and some snacks under the pavilion. Please bring a refillable water bottle with your name on it. We strive to reduce waste and recycling when we can by bringing reusable containers. Closed toe shoes are required. We recommend sunscreen and a hat for sun protection. WCG provides tools and work gloves. There is a port-a-potty on site. Carpool and Parking Parking is limited at the location so participants are asked to meet at The FountainLife Center (14083 S. Main St, Houston, TX 77035) at 7:30am for carpooling. If traveling separate from the group, there is limited parking on the north end of the garden property near the sheds; otherwise we have street parking on Dunlap. When you arrive, please come to the pavilion (blue roof) to get signed in. More about the Westbury Community Garden: The 7-acre site of the Westbury Community Garden, located at Dunlap at Fonmeadow in the Westbury SuperNeighborhood, is owned by the Houston Housing Authority. For almost 30 years, the land has been park space. In 1982 the Westbury Civic Club filed suit against the Houston Housing Authority for violations of statutes related to their plans to build an apartment complex on this site. An out-of-court agreement was reached, and it was decided that this acreage would be a good site for a city park due to its location next to an existing 900+ unit apartment complex. The Houston Parks and Recreation Department leased and maintained the land for 25 years.
