Growing the South Austin Thicket
In 2015, owner Adam Diaz planted his idea for the South Austin Thicket in a field surrounded by dense woods. It was peaceful and picturesque. As he added food trucks, community events, and artisan markets, the Thicket quickly grew into a community hub right here in the heart of South Austin.
Diaz quickly added a stage to his Thicket, which brought in bands from Austin and the surrounding communities. Whether it was a rock band, a jazz group, or a country artist donning that stage, folks traveled from all over to get a tasty lunch and hear some great tunes. They quickly found themselves as part of an engaging community.
The community garden came next. Today, it’s a thriving hub of hard work and fresh vegetables. You can find your green thumb with a gardening lesson and then take home your share of the harvest.
