Demo Restoration Plots at Pease Park Photos

In the fall of 2007/winter of 2008, the Austin Parks Foundation established a series of demonstration restoration plots in portions of Pease Park – tilling areas, applying dillo dirt and liquid compost and then planting a great mix of wildflower and grass seeds.  Of course, we then experienced two years of drought, but some flowers and grasses did appear each of the two springs.  Well, thanks to rains this fall, winter and spring, our plots along Kingsbury are looking good – here’s a few photos from yesterday.  (we also planted 35 trees in this area and they are doing well thanks to irrigation installed at the same time.)
