This post is sponsored by our community partner, the Festival Beach Food Forest, a grassroots pilot project that has transformed 2/3rds of an acre of city parkland into an edible forest garden where visitors can openly forage and enjoy fresh food on the shores of Lady Bird Lake.
This post is sponsored by the Festival Beach Food Forest. All Austin Common sponsors are screened by The Austin Common team to ensure they’re doing good for their employees, our community, and the planet.
Can you bring a community together with food? Can you sustainably grow food on a piece of public parkland?
These are the questions a small group of Austinites are exploring with the Festival Beach Food Forest, a small plot of land in East Austin where fruits, nuts, and herbs are grown and made available to the public… entirely for free.
Learn more about it (and how you can get involved) with our latest post.
