Your support keeps local food available for all.
The Weekly Dirt
Thank You!
We'd like to send our deepest thanks to everyone for their support over these last weeks. Because of the generosity of many individuals in our community, we have raised over $53,000 to help regain the revenue we lost from our canceled Farm to Plate fundraiser. These funds will also be DOUBLED thanks to the Still Water Foundation, our Board of Directors, and Tito's Handmade Vodka.

We'd also like to thank everyone who tuned in and contributed to our virtual event, "The Food Must Go On." If you'd like an encore viewing, our event recording is now available to stream at, on Facebook, or on YouTube. And we also now have a bonus clip available from Liz Cardinal of Austin Edible Gardens! Liz shares her passion for local food and gives us some tips on what we can plant now. Watch the clip »

We're so grateful to everyone for your support, and we look forward to sharing more with you about how we will weather this storm and prepare for whatever may be ahead. Thank you.
