Can’t buy the farm? Never fear! You can support local economy and food security throughout Austin without breaking the bank.
HOLIDAY SEASON NOTE: Online honor gift donations made by December 12th will arrive in time for Chanukah and donations made by Dec. 19th will arrive in time for Christmas.
Your donation to Urban Patchwork is a great, tax-deductible way to commemorate holidays, memorials and give a meaningful gift to that “someone who has everything”.
Even better, each gift sponsorship is a gift that keeps on giving! For example, $50 allows a neighborhood to buy and support the annual food needs of one chicken. During the same year that chicken will supply up to 200 eggs to a family in Austin! With that same chicken, we can teach more families how to care for and raise backyard chickens for their own food.
From $10 – $1,000, any of the sponsorships you choose multiply abundantly just like the example above. When you give, food sustainability becomes a reality for people all across the city, now and well into the future.
*When you make a commemorative donation in someone’s name, email us to request that we send them an honor card like the hand-made one pictured above.

Veggie Plots -
When a new garden plot is tilled and life is restored to the dry, packed ground, veggie harvesting can begin the same year and feed several families. Healthy growing practices support an ever increasing abundance, and community veggie plots provide gathering space for neighbors to meet and grow together.
Flock of Chickens –
Within the first year, a new neighborhood flock of chickens will start to lay enough eggs to feed 25-50 families each week! Eggs are some of the richest and most complete sources of protein. Chickens are a delightful addition to any yard while eating up bothersome bugs and creating rich natural fertilizer for healthy veggies.
Fish Pond –
A new, biologically balanced pond can literally teach dozens of families “how to fish” for years to come. Ponds create habitat for native animals, capture and filter rainwater, cool the earth’s surface, and provide edible fish with an added benefit – they eat mosquitos!
Native Habitat –
We join with the City of Austin to help support our status as a Certified Wildlife Habitat City – the largest in the US, in fact! Birds, bees and butterflies thrive when the environment around us is balanced, supports animals’ nutritional needs and provides safe shelter. Thriving native plants bloom year-round!
Fruit and Nut Grove –
Imagine walking down any street in Austin picking and eating fresh fruits right on the spot, any time of year! Our vision is that Austin is covered, street by street with a woodland orchard ripe for the picking with abundant fruit and nut trees, and berry vines all year.
Support a Farmer –
New urban farmers are trained in disciplines that teach stewardship, organic farming practices, soil and habitat restoration, urban forestry care, aquaponics, animal husbandry, community development and more. Through Urban Patchwork’s programs, that knowledge gets passed on to others for a lifetime.
