Please click here to see details for the current Tour.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is hosted as a benefit each Spring ( in Austin ) by Whole Earth Provision Co. The 2011 beneficiary of that festival is Westcave Preserve, which is located in southwestern Travis County. Recently the proceeds from the Banff fest totaling $4000.00 was presented to Molly Stevens, Executive Director  of Westcave, (pictured on the left above) by Whole Earth’s General Manager, Walter Wakefield.

Whole Earth is a proud supporter of Westcave Preserve and we highly recommend that you take a look at what this wonderful 75 acres of Hill Country has to offer.

Chaco to Donate to Enchanted Rock



Again this summer, Chaco footwear and Whole Earth Provision Co. are teaming up to the benefit of almost everyone’s favorite Texas park: Enchanted Rock State Natural Area. Several thousands of dollars have been contributed through the previous editions of this program. To help out, simply visit any of the eight Whole Earth stores around the state and for every pair of Chacos you buy, Chaco will donate $5.00 to the beneficiary that Whole Earth has designated.

Whole Earth is happy to once again pick the Friends of Enchanted Rock to utilize the funds raised through this program at the Rock. The event is scheduled to be active from June 25th through July 10th.  The Friends of Enchanted Rock has decided to use this year’s funds to save water in the park. Conserving water is especially important at Enchanted Rock as water shortage is a serious issue there. This being the third consecutive year of drought, the plan is to replace all the existing plumbing in the restrooms to low flow, water saving fixtures. They may literally run out of water this summer due to the outdated, water-
wasting faucets, urinals, and shower heads still in place.

We say its way overdue in coming. Please help. And, of course, you will love your new pair of Chacos.
