Festival Beach Food Forest is an edible ecosystem. The park is free and open to the public on the shores of Lady Bird Lake, east of IH-35. Join us as we transform public parkland into an edible forest garden, open to all in the heart of the city. Moving beyond red tape and fences, we are establishing Texas’ first official food forest in a public park.

Our City Council-approved, the shovel-ready project grew from ideas that emerged through two years of community conversations about the future of a 90-acre park along the northern shores of Lady Bird Lake in East Austin.

Festival Beach Food Forest is a grassroots pilot project neighboring the Festival Beach Community Garden and RBJ Residential Center in East Austin. We intend to transform three acres of a 90-acre park into an edible forest garden where visitors can openly forage and enjoy fresh food on the shores of Lady Bird Lake. Fruits, nuts, vegetables and herbs will now inhabit the city-owned land.

Our plan was unanimously approved by Austin City Council as part of the Holly Shores and Edward Rendon Sr. Park Master Plan on August 28th, 2014. The Master Plan will enhance the expansive neighborhood park by increasing accessibility, improving maintenance, and establishing the Festival Beach Food Forest.

This project was first envisioned by community activists from the East Feast Coalition who recognized the power of community members connecting, growing, and celebrating together. Ground
