Did you know that every year, the New Year's Eve in Times Square party generates over 50 metric tons of waste?
And that's just one event of countless others across the globe.
This year, commit to a sustainable celebration and skip the sequins and suits! Throw on a comfortable and casual outfit to celebrate the new year in a new way: sustainably at Finca Tres Robles, Houston's only private farm in the inner loop. This twist on a traditional New Year's Eve bash makes for an unforgettable experience, while supporting the unique agricultural space Finca Tres Robles has created in the East End--historically, an area of Houston that has been plagued by food deserts and healthy food inaccessibility.
Cozy up around bonfires whose ashes go into the farm's compost to help feed the East End. Roast marshmallows with your friends, warm up with hot toddies, craft beer, and nonalcoholic drinks in reusable glasses--no disposable cups here. Enjoy listening to music while mixing and mingling under the starry night. Grab a late-night snack from a local food truck, or dessert from a spread of traditional Scandinavian baked goods from the East End's Home Baked Hembakat. All food is served on compostable dinnerware.
Other activities include taking a night tour of the farm under the stars to see how the space evolves once the sun sets. Take the mandatory 2019 photo with a poloroid camera. Paint your goals for the new year on recycled paper using inks made from the farm's vegetables. And at midnight, ring in 2019 with a toast among friends, all while supporting Finca Tres Robles’ mission of community collaboration and healthy living.
