Join us at Texas Farmers’ Market as we celebrate Earth Month all April long! Our mission of growing a sustainable local food system in Central Texas is directly intertwined with the health of our planet. Shopping at the farmers’ markets is a great way to reduce your carbon footprint, because you are purchasing food that was grown within 150 miles of our market, as opposed to being shipped in from thousands of miles away. Join us every weekend in April for a series of fun events and programming to educate and inspire on the many ways we can all do our part to help protect our planet. Click here for more information.
Sunday, April 23rd at Mueller, 11am-1pm: Natural Dye Demo with New Leaf Agriculture
Join us during the middle two hours of the market for a natural dye workshop with New Leaf Agriculture. They will be showing how they dye items with natural dye made from Mexican Marigolds grown at their farm, which creates a gorgeous golden yellow shade. We will also dye and raffle off some items including a Texas Farmers’ Market tote bag. New Leaf Agriculture is a social enterprise of the Multi-Cultural Refugee Coalition, which trains and employs refugee farmers from traditional farming cultures in dignified work that reconnects them to farming in their new communities.
