Johnson’s Backyard Garden


Johnson’s Backyard Garden got its start in 2004 when Brenton Johnson transformed his East Austin backyard in the Holly Street neighborhood into a bountiful vegetable garden. Brenton used his experience slinging grilled cheese sandwiches at Grateful Dead shows and began selling his backyard bounty at the Austin Farmers’ Market downtown. This was the start of our farm! In 2006, Brenton started a small CSA Program beginning with around 30 Austin families. The backyard garden eventually took over the front and side yards, too, leaving Brenton’s kids with little room to play.
