Edible Urban Garden Tour - July 15th

GET YOUR GROW ON with DC's first Edible Urban Garden Tour hosted by, 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.

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 tour locations will be distributed on the day of the event at Old City Green. The tour is self-guided and will cover several miles. Bring out your bikes (or use Capital Bikeshare’s two-wheelers), strap on your walking shoes (if you’re feeling up to it), or consider carpooling with a group.

Organizers of the tour hope to  support the "grow your own" movement and create a community event designed to be a resource for the many local residents interested in finding ways to grow their own food.  For questions, please send an email to
