Feeling good by doing good…That’s so often what Green Corn volunteers describe—that digging food gardens with folks who’ll soon be growing their own fresh organic vegetables makes a person feel genuinely happy. And it’s a comment heard even when the dig-in days are toasty or chilly soggy, as it tended during the just-completed fall garden dig-ins.
Now it’s time for anybody looking for some feel-good fun to mark your calendars for October 25—Green Corn’s annual fall fest fundraiser at lovely Boggy Creek Farm. Once again, 32 top Austin restaurants and gustatory purveyors (many thanks!) are serving up their finest fare for a sensory celebration worth well more than the $35 entrance.
Our generous sponsors (mille grazie!) and silent auction donors (muchas gracias!) are once again providing an enchanting afternoon at Boggy Creek and a chance to score a smorgasbord of creature delights. Picture yourself or a friend or relative delighted by the likes of these: Luxurious weekend stays…gala gourmet gatherings…stress-melting pampering…exquisite sustainable dining…garden and backyard makeovers…cool cooking classes…amazing art for body and home…local taste treats…garden goodies…enticing entertainment extravaganzas…sweet grocery giveaways…and much more.
This year, we’ll have something extra—a children’s table (Danke! to Natural Gardener) where kids can create art, play games, and take home their own veggie starter kit!
Along with inspirational chef demos and live music…well, it’s got to be the most fun going on in Austin on the 25th.
Feeling good; doing good…join us for a win-win afternoon at Boggy Creek, and thanks for your support for Green Corn’s goal of feeding Austin, one garden at a time.
