Every first Friday of the month, Friends of Yellow Jacket Garden bring veggies from our partner Farm Share out in east Austin near the Airport into town to sell at a great price — $1 per bunch.  Its the Bread & Roses Community Farm Stand under the big oak grove on the north east playground of Blackshear Elementary School at the corner of Salina & Gregory Streets 78702.  From 2:00-3:30, Blackshear families, staff, and neighbors have first dibs and other Friends of Yellow Jacket Garden are welcome to get your veggies here as well.
