On August 28th, 2014, the city council unanimously approved the first phase of The Festival Beach Food Forest- WHOOT! We will start the pilot on 2/3rd of an acre but ultimately it will grow to a 2-acre fence-free edible Eden on our public park land, where all are welcome to learn about food forestry and experience the beauty of an edible oasis in the heart of Austin.
In celebration of our groundbreaking, we are hosting a kick-off benefit party that will include the following local musicians; Los Texas Wranglers, Wiretree, Graham Wilkinson, Honey Punch, Full Moon Medicine, Jimony, DJ Bildeaux, Super Smash Bros. and The Lost Pines. Dessert from Little Lucy’s and beverages by Meridian Hive, East Ciders, and more.

The Festival Beach Food Forest will also be honored with a generous financial gift from Les Dames D’Escoffier.
