Thank you to the folks who tend plots at the Joe B Parks Riverwalk Public Gardens. These dedicated individuals visit their gardens weekly to maintain the gardens and enjoy the surprises that Joe designed into the landscape at every turn.
Additional assistance is needed to maintain the website, historical research of the garden area ( we hear it once had a Turkish bathhouse along the walkway ), database management, steering committee leadership, as well as other chores that keep the garden functioning so feel free to contact us to help even if you think you have a black thumb. Click here to send us a message.
Common Area Tenders are needed for weekly sweeping, trash pick-up, weeding, and general clean-up to keep these spaces looking spiffy- no gardening talent is needed.
