About Urban American Farmer

Growing up surrounded by the flat farmland of the midwest, Trisha's earliest memories of family and community revolved around food. Her studies in city planning and community development led her from the country to the city where she spent her 20s working in restaurants and bakeries. She was led back to the farm in pursuit of better tasting and higher quality ingredients and has since been farming in Austin, growing the hype on food, and connecting the community with local farmers through a variety of ways including hosting Austin's inaugural Field Guide Festival.

The event is open to All In, Flexible, and Monthly Members.
