Neighborhood Plant Exchange 2013

Hey there Walnuts!

I know it’s a bit late in the year, but we are ready to bring back the neighborhood plant exchange! Kernan has graciously offered to host this year, so we’ll be doing our plant exchange from his yard spilling over into the park. (12105 Scribe Dr)

The plant exchange will be held Saturday June 22nd beginning around 9:30 till noon, before it gets too hot.

Bring some plants to trade and exchange. This is a great opportunity to thin out those prolific plants and have the good feeling of knowing that your plants or clipping are going to a great new home. Most importantly it’s an opportunity to get to know your fellow gardening neighbors, and see what is going on in the neighborhood.

Feel free to bring a snack to share if you like, but most importantly, bring some plants to trade!

Please share what surplus you have, and or mention what you are looking for in the comment section below.

(I’m going to just throw it out there that I have have several varieties of succulents, 3 varieties of wandering jews, some heart shaped ice plant, and am looking for some Turks caps, and or plumbagos!) :)

On a side note, I’d be happy to fill you in on the progress of our community garden initiative!
… had to throw that quick plug in!

Hope to see you there!

WXNA Garage Sale 2013

Time again to get ready for the annual WXNA neighborhood Garage Sale and hazardous waste collection! Patricia Raine our Walnut garage sale committee chair has suggested we host our neighborhood garage sale the first Saturday in May every year. This year that is Saturday, May 4th 2013. If you will be hosting a garage sale please sign up here. The addresses will be assembled onto a map and featured in the Craigslist add. If you sign up and realize you are unable to host a sale please let us know so we can remove you from the map. This has been a great neighborhood effort in the past, let’s make it a success again this year!

2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt/Pot-luck Luncheon

I would like to proudly announce Walnut Crossing’s 2nd Annual Easter Egg Hunt/Pot-luck luncheon on Saturday, March 30th at 11:00 to 2:00, the Egg Hunt beginning at 11:30. Please bring your kids to participate in this event. It will be hosted at Balcones Park on Scribe. If you haven’t paid your dues, this would be a great opportunity to do so. Since it’s a Pot-Luck Luncheon you can bring any food you would like, but you can also expect hotdogs fresh off the grill along with many other snacks and foods, so don’t think you are required to bring anything. Please RSVP in the comments section below and please list the food or drink item if you are contributing anything.
