Growing Food in the City – Working with Nature and Each Other

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm
 

Workshop sponsored by Design~Build~Live

House + Earth, 1214 West 6th Street, Austin, Texas, 78703 (map)

Guest presenter: Paige Hill, Urban Patchwork

Learn about some of the most water conservative ways to grow food in Central Texas from the Director of Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms. Urban Patchwork believes that we can meet a majority of our food needs by growing food close to home in community and in partnership with nature.

Paige Hill, founder of Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms, has combined her background in community advocacy and urban design with her lifelong experience in environmental stewardship to create a stable, community-based food system that’s renewable and fits in every nook and cranny that an urban environment provides – at the same time making food production “doable” for all of us.

DBL is a volunteer-run educational organization providing valuable information, and optional donations at the door are always appreciated.  No RSVP required. For more details, email us via “Contact Us” or call Scott Clay at 512-689-1149.
