The St Michael’s garden, located outside of room 8, is a vegetable garden tended by St. Michael’s parishioners. The garden benefits the St. Michael’s food pantry,
Neighbor2Neighbor (a program which serves the low income neighbors of St. James Episcopal Church) and Manos de Christo care, education, food and clothing to low income Austinites). See what the garden is all about on this youtube link

May 8 2016: St. Michael’s Garden Delights“
lavender, sweet lavender;
come and buy my lavender,
hide it in your trousseau, lady fair.
Let its flovely fragrance flow
Over your from head to toe,
lightening on your eyes, your cheek, your hair.”
Cumberland Clark Flower Song Book 1929
After the morning services, the St. Michael’s Community Garden offered sachets made from lavender grown in the garden. These will make great Mother’s Day gifts!
We also sold 4” pots of Malabar spinach from the garden. This is a heat tolerant vine that is edible while being ornamental too! Your purchases will support the needs of the garden—plants, seeds, and equipment.
