Through the Public Interest Design Build Program at the University of Texas, a group of 5 architecture and design students came together with the Holly Neighborhood Coalition to design, construct and implement a mobile gardening tool shed and a volunteer gardening program in the Holly Neighborhood. The East Side Garden Exchange program brings together volunteers to help start residential gardens in East Austin neighborhoods.
