Sunshine Gardens celebrates over 30 years of community gardening in Austin!
Sunshine Community Gardens has been in existence since 1979 with over 200 plots on about 3 acres of land in north central Austin, Texas. The land is leased from Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) and they are our generous partners in providing the members of Sunshine with an urban oasis for growing organic food and flowers.
SCG is an all volunteer non-profit organization. With the assistance of Gabriel Valley Farms, a local grower, each spring on the 1st Saturday of March, our Annual Plant Sale and Benefit provides the Austin area spring transplants for their gardens. Heirloom tomatoes, sweet & hot peppers, eggplant, herbs and much more are sold to benefit the gardens. Funds help to keep our membership fees low, pay for maintenance of our tools and tractor, and provide opportunities for special projects at the garden.
Sunshine, through its parent organization, Community Garden Initiative of Central Texas, offers educational opportunities with garden tours, donations of seed and plants, and meeting space for other non-profits. A number of plots are set aside as designated gardens to grow fresh produce for the Micah 6 Food Bank.
