On August 20th, Austin City Council will decide how many events Springdale Farm will be permitted to host on their property. The decision will shape the financial and operational status of Springdale Farm and set a future precedent for Austin’s local food community.
As a functioning farm in the heart of East Austin, Springdale is on commercially-zoned property and seeks to hold a limited number of community events such as farm tours, educational events, cooking classes and weddings on their 5-acre property.
Springdale Farm grows organic fruits and vegetables, providing healthy food for Austin’s residents and restaurants. Their contribution to our community’s sustainability efforts as well as food and farm education are invaluable to the character of our city. Without their ability to offer events on the farm, Springdale will cease to be able to function as a viable business.
We ask that you offer your voice and support to help carry Springdale through this final City Council meeting. Please take a moment to visit this link if you would like to sign the petition to allow Springdale access to event permitting on their land and please share with friends. Springdale has given us all so much and now we’re honored to make an effort to give back.
