UT Concho Community Garden says
Celebrate Earth Day and environmental awareness by joining us for a tour of HausBar Farms !

Located in East Austin, this amazing urban space promotes sustainable living as its core mission.

Here are some of the awesome things they've got going on:

We’re installing solar panels over a pole barn to provide the entire farm, residence, and guesthouse with 90% of its electrical needs.
Our farmhouse is a City of Austin 5-Star Green home.
We have 30,000 gallons of rainwater capture storage which we use to drip irrigate our crops.
We have our own organic vegetable garden.
We raise our own meat and eggs.
We compost all vegetable matter and recycle all recyclables from our home, farm, and guesthouse.
We don’t use any gas-powered equipment anywhere on our property. Our donkeys mow and fertilize our pasture, and a solar-powered lawn company mows the guesthouse lawn.
