Spring in Austin, Texas

It's spring in Austin, Texas and that means there are events all over town for foodies and gardeners. Learn about green gardening, visit a local farm or just enjoy some great local food with friends.

Green Easter Egg Hunt

(We've been for the last two years-lots of fun for the kids!)
April 16, 2011  
SFC Farmers' Market Downtown (Sunset Valley location is April 23rd) 
10:00 am start for ALL ages
Information from the Sustainable Food Center Site: 

A "green" hunt with no sugar and high fun! Egg cascarones are filled with grass seed and kiddos are encouraged to 'break' the eggs over their friends and family member's heads to make the scene green. Also egg-inspired coupons all over the park (also happening at the Sunset Valley-Toney Burger Center site April 23rd) to redeem for a 'sweet'  strawberry direct from the farmer. Free egg collecting bags to first 100.  

We need more of your farmers' egg shells (empty and clean) for the cascarones!

Please see the link here to learn how to get an eggshell ready for cascarones and how to bring them to the market by the dozens!"
