Mike Shoup, founder and owner of the Antique Rose Emporium, and author of the beautiful book, Empress of the Garden, presents "Antique Roses - The Ultimate Landscape Plant." Happy Valentine's Day! Mike returns to The Natural Gardener at just the right time to prune roses. Antique roses are beautiful, drought-resistant, and hardy additions to our landscape. They are not the weak, finicky roses you find at the grocer or big box store! Now is the right time to prune roses for their health and for more blooms this spring. Come learn from the original Texas rose rustler, the founder and owner of Texas' premier supplier of roses.

Pat Dillon, General Manager of Submatic Drip Systems, and David Becerra, Drip System Specialist, teach us how to "Water Efficiently Using Drip Irrigation." Don't want to waste water? Here is drip irrigation to the rescue! Rather than losing so much precious water to the air through evaporation, drip systems put the water right where we need it - into the soil. Learn the basic steps to setting up your own Submatic system - before the weather gets too hot. It's relatively easy, versatile, and a real water- (and money-) saver. It's like a Lego set for adults! Learn from professionals how to design your own system - small or large. David Becerra has over 5 years experience in irrigation, over 4 years at Submatic. Pat Dillon has over 35 years of experience in the irrigation industry. He is a nationally-certified irrigation designer and a member of the Texas Nursery & Landscape Association. Pat has been with Submatic Drip Systems, a local Austin manufacturer, for over 20 years.

Deaflympics & TSD People Exhibit
Ongoing thru June 6, 2014

Texas School for the Deaf, Heritage Center & Museum, 1102 S Congress Ave, Austin TX 78704

We proudly present this exhibition to recognize and honor our amazing former and present TSD students and staff who have participated in the International Deaflympics games as athletes, coaches, and even officials.

The exhibits in the back room feature memorabilia of the Deaflympians from 1957 to 2013. They include medals, uniforms, banners, etc. The other exhibit in the front right corner of the museum focuses on our TSD icon Ruth Seeger, the only woman on the first USA track and field team in 1957 and five-time USA Women’s track and field coach from 1965 to 1989.

In 1957, the first USA team was sent to the International Games for the Deaf in Rome, Italy. Three people from TSD on the USA track and field team were Raymond Butler, Athletic Director, Ruth Seeger, a PE teacher, and Sammy Oates, a 1958. Since 1957, TSD people were at every game. As of now, the total of medals earned by both former and present students and staff is 109.

Last July at the 2013 Deaflympics held at Sofia, Bulgaria, three TSD students earned six medals. One of them is now a senior at TSD. It is believed that TSD has the most medals among the other schools for the deaf at this Deaflympics. All together there were 10 people from TSD as athletes and coaches. At this Deaflympics, Delvin Furlough, a 2009 graduate, tied with a 1974 graduate Suzy Barker’s most-medal record among the TSD athletes. They earned six medals.

When: Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays from 10 am to 2 pm; and, by appointments for other times and days. For a museum tour or an appointment, please email heritage.center@PROTECTED.
