One of these days, I WILL be a member of Johnson’s Backyard Garden. It is not quite in our budget for the time being, however the minute it is…move out of my way, fresh produce grown locally here I come!
This is what they have to say about themselves on their site (can you say SIGN ME UP?!):
We’re a 70-acre organic Community Supported farm only five miles east of downtown Austin. Over 1,000 Austinites enjoy our homegrown, organic vegetables, herbs and flowers. We deliver boxes weekly or biweekly to convenient neighborhood locations. Our members receive produce harvested a few days, if not hours, from Austin’s own backyard.
A few of Mr. Fancy Pants’ studio mates from Public School went to volunteer at JBG earlier in 2010. I really wish that my work schedule was conducive to doing this because it looks like great fun. Check out the guys hard at work.
Here’s a sample of this past week’s box (list of what was included and photo of the amazing fresh produce):

Their branding was recently redone by the incredibly talented Ryan Rhodes. I have included an amazing stop motion video of him painting the JBG farm truck below. Check it out. It’s pretty incredible.
