The Green Corn Project Fall Festival is soon! I went last year, and it was fantastic. There were lots of tastes from some of the best restaurants in Austin, for only $35 a ticket. You can buy tickets for this year's festival, which is on October 24, on their website.
Plus, you're supporting a good cause. Green Corn Project puts in organic gardens in the yards of elderly, disabled, and low-income Austinites, as well as in elementary schools, and teach the recipients how to maintain them. Pretty incredible, right?
