The good people at Farmshare Austin hosted a Farm Raiser at the Getaway Motor Club on Friday to raise money for their new Farmer Starter program launch.
The event featured square dancing (with lessons first!) and live music from the Barn Owls, BBQ from Moontower Coop, local vegan and vegetarian delights, and craft beverages. Proceeds were used to support Farmshare’s Indiegogo campaign which will help the Farmer Starter program launch this fall.
