    On April 2, 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 Jenny Peterson, author, landscape designer Healing Gardens: Body, Mind, Spirit ; Eva Maria Van Dyke, insect advocate Gardening on the Wild Side and Keri Anderson, terrarium designer Terrariums Today: Go Undercover With Seeds and Plants.

    Not to be missed will be the legendary raffle of “garden goodies”. Everyone goes home a winner. It’s a wonderful way, rain or shine, to spend a morning learning how to add color into your landscape while relaxing among gregarious peafowl, towering palms, flowering trees, and ponds filled with lilies…and for only a $5.00 donation!! For more information please contact or mayfieldpark.org.

    Signed copies of Jenny Peterson’s new book, Cancer Survivor’s Garden Companion: Cultivating Hope, Healing and Joy in the Ground Beneath Your Feet will be available for purchase.
