Celebrate Green Gate Farms 5th Birthday Hootenanny

Saturday, June 4, 2011 - 6:00pm to 8:30pm

Celebrate five years of farming at our new farm and our New Farm Institute next Saturday at our First Annual Hootenanny. You’ll find good food and music, cool recreation, and a great cause.

Join us 20 miles east of Austin (just 15 minutes east of our in-town farm on Canoga Ave) for a community party to celebrate Green Gate Farms 5th anniversary, the farmers's birthdays, and the launch of our educational non-profit, New Farm Institute. The mission of New Farm Institute (NFI) is to educate, assist and inspire a new generation of sustainable farmers, with a focus on the urban fringe — an area defined as within 30 miles of medium to large cities.

Activities include swimming canoeing, fishing, straw bale building demo and hay rides.  Please bring a shareable side for the potluck dinner.

Green Gate heritage meats prepared by El Locavore.  Beer and wine will be available along with local artisenal vendors and a silent auction.  Overnight campers are welcome but please reserve your spot.

We'll have farm activities such as hayrides, straw bale building demo, etc.
