The presentation covers three popular gardening activities in Central Texas: vegetable, flower, and tree planting. The goal is to give tips and advice for things even the novice gardener can do to beautify their yard during the cooler months of autumn. The presentation has both books and online sources the audience can refer to as well.

Christi Shannon became a Central Texas Master Gardener in fall 2017 when she retired from teaching public school English. She has been passionate about plants since she was a little girl and her great-grandmother (who was born in Seguin in 1882) taught her how to take a plant cutting, put it in water, and turn it into a potted plant. Today, she is focusing on Texas native and adapted plants and dirt (experimenting with composting and Texas products to make our rocky/clay soil able to sustain healthy, drought-tolerant plants). She has worked with the team on maintenance of the Hays-Caldwell demo gardens and helped with displays and presentations around Hays County, including presentation to middle school kids at Miller MS on soil. Her goals as Recording Secretary are to insure that the chapter has accurate records and serve the organization in a way to inspire other to get involved with their plant passions!
