When Chris moved to It's About Thyme, he brought with him this experience, and now every Tuesday and Thursday a yellow AISD school bus pulls into the parking lot, and children from Crockett High School pile out and enthusiastically get to work on a variety of horticultural projects.
The nursery also donates fresh vegetables from its garden to some of the Austin's/area food banks.
