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
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 Bettina@loulies.com.
