What Is It?
An oasis in the middle of downtown Austin, Texas, the Festival Beach Food Forest is an edible forest garden where visitors can openly forage and enjoy fresh food on the shores of Lady Bird Lake.
By working with nature, we work less. In a food forest, humans help set the conditions where they, the plants, and local animals can keep the system thriving over time. Using permaculture design and regenerative practices, the FBFF provides food, shade, and ecosystem services to its neighbors.
Come enjoy the fruits, nuts, vegetables, and medicinal herbs that flourish in this fence-less community pilot project!
