Edible Urban Garden Tour
GET YOUR GROW ON with DC's first Edible Urban Garden Tour hosted by Loulies.com, Friday, July 15th from 5-8PM.
Explore city spaces and residential gardens that will open their doors and gates for the public to see what growing good food in our own backyards, front yards, rooftops, and empty lots is all about. It's a chance to ask questions, learn from and hear what inspires some of DC's best gardeners. Garden features will include composting, beehives, rain barrels, fruit trees, herbs and lots of vegetable ideas.
The tour will start at the beautiful, plant-filled garden shop named Old City Green and stretch through the revitalized neighborhoods of Shaw, Bloomingdale and Ledroit Park. Plus, see for yourself and learn more about Common Good City Farm the community garden that Prince Charles recently toured as part of his inspiring Future of Food visit to DC. A map of garden locations will be distributed on the day of the event at Old City Green and will include six residential and three public locations.
The tour is self-guided and will cover about four miles so biking or walking are possible. Then, join us back at Old City Green for a seasonal cocktail, community potluck (bring a dish if you'd like) and garden shop giveaways.
