Greenbelt Guardians logo

Spring has finally arrived, and we are excited to get outside and do some much-needed work on the greenbelt trail. We will be working on the Homedale Trail and across the creek near the Spyglass entry. As always, we will provide tools and team leaders for all of the tasks, and some breakfast tacos to get us off to a good start. We will be working on: 1) trail maintenance and repair, 2) invasives management, 3) construction of a stone retaining wall to support the wooden bridge that floated off of its moorings during a flood, and 4) trash pick-up. We hope lots of you will come out and work with us to care for this very special place in our city.

This work day celebrates the 10th annual It’s My Park Day event sponsored by the Austin Parks Foundation, and volunteers who sign up in advance will receive a specially designed T-shirt for the event, plus a Chipotle gift card and some wildflower seeds. Come celebrate a festive anniversary and do some good work with us! To sign up, go to:

Barton Hills Garden Club meets Jan. 28th

IMPORTANT NOTE: This meeting has been cancelled due to expected snow and anticipated closure of the Zilker Botanical Garden. 

Our meeting is right around the corner, Jan 28th 9:30 AM at the Zilker Botanical Garden. Colleen Dieter will be talking about “Roses…Care and Pruning.” Join us and unlock the mysteries of caring for your roses. It is easier than you think! We will cover pruning, feeding and pathology.

Colleen Dieter’s first encounter with the earth came as a child when she dumped a bucket of sand on her brother’s head. Since then, Colleen has spent her time and energy cultivating an appreciation of the soil’s fertility, a practical understanding of the internal processes of plants, and a respect for the earth grounded in using organic methods.

Owner of Red Wheelbarrow Landscape Consulting, Colleen is a passionate and pragmatic horticulturalist. Colleen enjoys sharing her expertise while addressing each client’s specific needs. Her primary goals for every job are to establish a comfortable rapport with clients where they feel their voices are heard. She believes that our yards are an extension of our homes, financially and emotionally, and takes to heart her role to help increase each property’s value as well as enhance the client’s peace of mind.
