Trowel & Error 2019 Wrap Up!

Trowel & Error 2019 Wrap Up!


First, the Mayfield Council would like to thank our generous sponsors this year:


Austin Parks & Recreation Department

Friends of the Parks of Austin

The law firm of Scott Douglass McConnico

Frost Bank

Friends of Reed Park

Barton Springs Nursery

West Austin Neighborhood Group

The Natural Gardener

McCarthy Print


And our raffle wouldn’t have been so successful with out these fine local merchants:


Anderson Coffee & Teas

Shoal Creek Nursery

Miguel’s Pottery

Magnolia Café

Wild Birds Unlimited

Seize the Day Chair Massage


A Big Thank You to Our Speakers:


Jeanne Ferrier, President of the Austin Pond Society

Colleen Dieter, Red Wheelbarrow Landscape consulting

Joseph Baiocchi, President of the Austin Rose Society


They were excellent and informative. Our guest numbers were down but that made for a cozy symposium we held in the cottage itself. All of the heirloom plants brought in from the gardens went out the door to new homes, our raffle brought great interest, the refreshments provided by Brownie Scout Troop 42112 were delicious, and folks showed their appreciation.


The only thing that didn’t meet our high expectation was the weather, but as a native west Texan, it is hard for me to complain about rain. An especial thank you goes out to all of you fine neighbors and friends that have been so generous in making donations to the ongoing preservation efforts at Mayfield. This being my first year as leader of the Council, it has been humbling.


We will see you at the park.


Blake Tollett, Chair
