The Eco Fair hosted at HOPE Farmer’s Market
This coming spring we will be celebrating our FIFTH annual Eco Fair!! March 31st. Contact Chloe@hopefarmersmarket.org to participate as a booth or a sponsor!
This past March 25th 2018 was our fourth annual Eco Fair! An event that was birthed in 2014, has been ever advancing and growing!
We believe that the Eco Fair is a fundamental pillar of what we stand for here at Austin Permaculture Guild. It serves as a platform that actively promotes, supports, and connects eco-conscious organizations with people in Austin who want to be involved. Hosting the Eco Fair creates a space for education of all ages. The bottom line, this is an event that creates a resilient and local Austin, TX.
"Thanks for letting Environment Texas come out to the Hope Farmer's Market this past Sunday. We had a wonderful reception and spread the word about the plight of the bees to a lot of people. We collected 60 photo petitions! Our goal for the summer was 50 and we managed to pass that in one weekend thanks to you and all the people over at Hope. Thanks you so much for the opportunity." - Anthony at Environemnt Texas
"Our biggest event of the year!" - Nat Allister, Manager at HOPE Farmer's Market
"I'm super excited to experience something as wonderful as the Eco-Fair, especially as a sponsor! I know I've said it before, but I really appreciate all the help and collaborations you've done with us so far. I see this blossoming into something even more beautiful in years to come!" - Young Park, Euphoria Music Festival | Sponsor of Eco Fair 2017
