Special Offer: Hill Country Conservancy cd

Whole Earth Provision Company and Hill Country Conservancy are teaming up to help preserve what’s great about Austin.

For years, Hill Country Conservancy has been helping preserve the wide-open spaces and sensitive land of the precious Hill Country. Their slogan – Here Forever – is a perfect reminder that the rolling hills, clean rivers and breathtaking views are worth protecting.

But we all know there’s more to Central Texas than the land. The entire Central Texas experience should be protected – the music scene, the lifestyle, the attitude. And the local businesses that have embodied that Central Texas state of mind.

That’s why Whole Earth Provision Company is partnering with the Hill Country Conservancy this month to promote Here Forever, a compilation CD of music by our most beloved Texas musicians like Willie Nelson, Jerry Jeff Walker and Asleep at the Wheel – all singing about the Hill Country.

During the month of November, at Whole Earth Provision Company’s Austin locations, the CD will be free when customers spend $100 or more. The offer is only good while supplies last, so hurry by for your own sound of the Hill Country.
