Editor’s note: Green Gate announced today that they are postponing this event until Sept. 24.

Green Gate Farms is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a potluck and, in true Austin style, a barn hug from 4 to 10 p.m. on Saturday, Sept 24. The event is free, and guests can bring a dish to share. There will be live music and farm activities, and you can find out more about the farm’s popular weeklong summer camps for kids ages 5 to 15. The weekly themed camps, which start at $350 for CSA members, start the week of June 6 and run through July 22.

The farm, 8310 Canoga Ave., is located on the 114-year-old Swedish Bergstrom farm site, and the owners, Erin Flynn and Skip Connett, were recently in the news as they negotiated an extended lease with the new owners of the land. You can find out more about the farm and all of the upcoming events at greengatefarms.net.
