AmplifyATX with Farmshare and EWB!

unnamedFarmshare Austin is a local non-profit that aims to educate the next generation of organic vegetable growers in Central Texas and provide fresh produce to low-income families. EWB - Greater Austin has been working diligently with Farmshare Austin to help design a composting latrine, and we're currently on track to begin construction September of this year! Support your local non-profits & participate in Austin's day of giving via #AmplifyATX until 6:00 pm tonight! Help Farmshare reach their fundraising goals by donating here.

Also, registration for EWB - Greater Austin's urban scavenger hunt, Water Trotter, is now open! Water Trotter is a super fun event held the last Saturday in April and you can learn more or sign-up here.

The Water Trotter Urban Challenge is a fun and challenging urban trekking adventure over a distance of approximately three miles. Teams will navigate through the diverse urban ecosystem of Austin’s Waller Creek Corridor exploring local neighborhoods, the Capitol and the University of Texas at Austin campus. The urban challenge is designed to emphasize the importance of clean water in developing countries.

Your sponsorship of this event will help raise resources for EWB-Austin Chapter to construct vital water infrastructure programs in Peru and Guatemala. Find out more here.
