PEAS Farm Member Registration and Waiver
Membership is open to the public on a sliding scale of $10-$50 per member/family.
Your membership helps support ongoing maintenance and upkeep of the farm and gives you "pick your own" at your leisure harvesting privileges. When harvesting, please be mindful of the students and other members and only pick what you or your family will actually be able to eat.
PEAS Community Farm & Urban Orchard began in 2011 when educators, students, parents, and community members came together at Cunningham Elementary (2200 Berkeley Ave., Austin, TX 78745) in South Austin to develop a 2,400 square foot community garden designed to foster relationships and promote sustainability and stewardship through experiential education.
*Please wear your mask in Covid stages 3-5 and observe appropriate social distancing measures when you stop by the farm.*
For members and volunteers:
