Postponed – Kick Off The Fruitful Commons: A Fundraiser
July 30 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm
** Please note – Due to increasing COVID risks, this event has been postponed. A new date will be released shortly. **
On Friday, July 30th from 7 – 11pm we will be kicking off our GardenVoices initiative and hosting a special gathering in support of healthy local food growers, strengthening communities, and fostering stewardship of our natural commons.
The event will take place on the lovely outdoor patio at Ani’s Day & Night (7107 E Riverside Dr, Austin, TX). There is plentiful free parking on site at Ani’s.
There will be live music by the Ben Balmer Trio and Much 2 Much on the outdoor patio, and with your ticket you will have access to our special bar serving beer and wine. There will also be a custom cocktail for sale, made by Ani’s mixologist using fresh herbs from the Festival Beach Food Forest. Delicious treats will be available for purchase from talented food truck artisans.
We will be exhibiting images from gardens all over Austin which we are connecting to form a ‘fruitful commons’ – with shared resources and creative solutions for fresh food access for all.
Tickets are offered on a sliding scale from $30-$70. If you cannot attend the event but still wish to support us, you can do so here.
Get your tickets today, and save the date on your calendar.
Over eighty gardens and community agriculture projects will share photos, voices and important ideas to deepen and strengthen their long-term sustainability and build a network of resources. The result of this co-created effort will result in greater food security, stronger communities, replenished soils and an expanded urban forest canopy in Austin.
