Preserving and Protecting West Austin




    Next WANG Board Meetings:

    The March board meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 6 at 6:30pm at Tarrytown Methodist Church (2601 Exposition Blvd, corner of McCullough and Exposition) in Rooms 226 & 228.

    WANG’s Annual Newsletter provides a recap and overview of our work this past year to preserve and protect the neighborhood from deterioration.  You can read the 2017 WANG Annual Newsletter here.  Our new electronic version of our January 2018 Newsletter is available now.


    On April 7, from 9:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., Mayfield Park will host Trowel & Error, the Spring event that annually attracts gardeners from all over Central Texas to hear experts give time-tested tips for beautiful gardens.  Although lectures begin at 10:00, the event “opens” at 9:30 for those early birds who want to purchase Mayfield’s hard-to-find heirloom bulbs and perennials for their April gardens and to stroll the garden paths in the early morning peacefulness.Peacock4

    Sponsored by Friends of the Parks of Austin, Trowel & Error will feature three dynamic and knowledgeable garden experts including:

    • Jay White (10 am), contributing editor for Texas Gardener, Masters in Horticulture, to speak on Propagating Like A Pro;
    • Daphne Richards (11 am), Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Horticulturist, to speak on Down To Earth With Daphne:Your Top Questions From Travis County Extension; and
    • April Rose (noon), Consulting Arborist, Rosewood Arbiculture, to speak on Environmental Health To Save Our Trees.
