Bastrop Y Community Garden!
In partnership with the City of Bastrop, the Bastrop Community Garden has beds available for adoption! The goal is to have beds adopted by organizations, civic groups, non-profits and families with the intent of using the garden as a teaching tool.
In order to adopt a bed, those interested will need to fill out an agreement. The guidelines are that those who adopt a bed are responsible for: upkeep of the bed (this includes cleaning, planting and watering) as well as cleaning out and preparing after the season for the next planting season.
The dirt and water will be provided, the rest is up to the adoptive groups/families. You can grow vegetables, flowers – go for it! There is no cost for using the bed, except for the seeds/plants of your choosing.
Tending to the bed is the group’s responsibility; there is no specific time a group is allowed to work on their bed, so work time is up to the group. Please keep in mind while planning your gardening schedule, the water is only available during Bastrop Y office hours.
The garden is being led in part by the Bastrop County Master Gardeners – they are available to guide and teach your group the ins and outs of gardening. If this is something your group would like, reach out to the Bastrop Y so we can help facilitate.
To adopt a bed, an application must be completed and signed as well as a signed rules and guidelines form.
If you and/or your group have any questions, please reach out to the Bastrop Y office during office hours at 512.321.9622.
