Legislative Action Needed on Environmental Bills in Austin
The 2019 Texas Legislature is in full swing. April is a critical time for the final push to persuade our legislators to pass good environmental legislation and to stop the bad. We need all interested environmentally-concerned activists to make calls, send emails and take action now. Come hear about what you can do to make a difference at this critical juncture in the 86th Texas Legislative Session.
Grow Your Own Food in North Texas
Texas Master Gardener Ruth B. Klein will tell you everything you ever wanted to know about growing your own vegetables in Texas.
Ruth was born and raised in Dallas. She used to wish she were a gardener, but never took it up because it seemed too hot and there were too many bugs and pollens in Texas.
In 2006 she decided to landscape her small yard. The desire to landscape using sound ecological principles ignited a passion for gardening she never knew she had. After a heroic effort to learn about gardening through books and classes, she joined the Master Gardener program in 2009. In 2010 Ruth’s home landscape was chosen to be on the City of Dallas WaterWise Tour.
Her current interest and focus is on community vegetable gardening. She helped start and leads a community garden at Temple Emanu-El in Dallas where the crop is donated to a local food bank.
