Green Corn Project Fundraiser

The tastiest fall celebration in Austin has to be the annual Green Corn Project fundraiser on the tree-shaded grounds at Boggy Creek Farm (3414 Lyons Rd.). GCP is an all-volunteer nonprofit that installs organic gardens for disadvantaged and disabled Austinites. The majority of their funding is generated by this event. Local chefs, businesses, and restaurants that support GCP's goals gather at the farm every fall to present cooking demos, provide food and drink samples, donate silent auction items, and enjoy live music. Cooking demos on the farmhouse back porch will be provided by Soup Peddler David Ansel, Alamo Drafthouse Iron Chefs John Bullington and Trish Eichelberger, and Dai Due Supper Club chef Jesse Griffiths. Between demos, guests can stroll the front yard, sampling signature dishes from more than 20 Austin restaurants and caterers. With the charming outdoor setting and ticket prices at only $30 in advance and $35 at the gate, this casual party is one of the most affordable tasting events of the entire year. Tickets are available at Boggy Creek Farm (cash and checks only), the Natural Gardener, Wheatsville Co-op, and online at www.greencornproject.org.
