The Food is Free Project will grow community and food, while helping gain independence from a broken agricultural system. Free wicking beds built from salvaged materials will be available to hosts who wish to offer free harvests to their neighbors, friends and community. Currently, we are able to provide these for free with a focus on areas in great need of healthy food (such as East Austin) and areas with good visibility to the public.
