The Annual Mayfield Gardening Symposium

Trowel and Error is the annual spring fundraising event dedicated to the Mayfield Park restoration efforts.

The Friends of the Parks of Austin sponsors this event.




Schedule your group for the 2nd Saturday of every month, 9 am–noon and join garden adopters and other volunteers to keep Mayfield Park gardens and ponds looking great. Please notify Janice before you show up to volunteer.

Special Projects / Workdays for Groups

Arrangements can be made for groups looking for a special project at Mayfield Park. Please contact Blake with questions.

Guided Garden Tours by a Mayfield Volunteer

By appointment only. Please email requests to Sharon to schedule.

Our Partners are Key

The Community Project would not be able to function proactively in addressing the needs at Mayfield without the very generous support from our friends and patrons. The folks below have supported us for many years and we ask that you consider their contributions when you visit the park.

A BIG thank you to Girl Scout Troop 42112 for donating their bake sale proceeds to the 2022 Trowel and Error Gardening Symposium!
