About

Join us on our mission to empower the people of Austin with more meaningful stories about the region’s growth, based upon our novel, independent analysis.

We have two events left in our Growing Weirder Breakfast Series! Our panel conversation and exclusive report on sustainability will be on Friday, 16 February. On Friday, 2 March, we will host a final discussion panel of elected officials and our own original insights on regional growth.

Growing Weirder combines analytical frameworks, grassroots and treetops advocacy strategies, and public agenda framing necessary for a paradigm shift in the growth and development strategies of a complex, diverse 21st Century Austin.

Growing Weirder is a Texurban project of Farm&City, a 501c3 nonprofit. The entire project is designed to be replicable in other Texas metro regions.

Breakfast Series

Farm&City is hosting a series of discussions to empower the people of Austin with more meaningful stories about the region’s growth, based upon real facts and analysis.

Four breakfast events will culminate in a longer full morning final event. Panels of local experts for each topic – parking, affordability, sustainability, and regional growth – will respond to a series of reports released at each event.  We can explain the expected results of our assumptions and have more meaningful debates.

Please help us launch this first series in the Growing Weirder project and build a foundation for a think tank for a 21st century Texas.

Sustainability

How can the City of Austin’s land development code and the CAMPO regional transportation plan ensure the capacity of our region to provide human habitat for a growing population while conserving open lands and providing for access to nature across the metropolis?

Farm&City is hosting a series of discussions to empower the people of Austin with stories about regional growth that can lead to the future we want.

Three breakfast events will culminate in a fourth full-morning final event. Panels of local experts for each topic – parking, affordability, sustainability, and regional growth – will respond to a series of reports released at each event.
