Thanks again to everyone who hosted, helped, and joined in for this year’s garden tour! I think they capture the tour vibe.
Sunday, July 31
Location: Our first (and last) stop will be the Spenard Community Garden located at 1303 West 33rd – next to Lutheran Social Services Food Pantry, and across the street from the old Fly By Night Club.
Time: 2 – 5 ish – Come for two gardens, or visit all seven! The length of the tour depends on how much chitter chatter we have at each stop and how long you want to stay out… So feel free to enjoy us for as much or little of the garden tour as suits your schedule. We’ll never be more than a mile or two from the start, so its easy to depart midway.
What is a garden bike tour?: We travel a five mile loop as a group visiting 6 to 8 gardens by bicycle (or roller blades?!?), with a brief introduction and tour of each garden by that site’s respective gardener(s)/host(s).
We’ll be touring Spenard (and a tiny bit of Midtown and North Star) with stops like: The Steller School Garden (formerly the Peace Garden) & a chat about the upcoming Steller School Orchard (50+ trees!!), Mary-Ellen’s Farmlet, the Midtown Community Garden, Jerry’s Berry Patch, Michelle Wilburs food forest/community garden, the Spenard Community Garden and more.
Reach out if you’d like to host an additional stop, with questions, and to RSVP!
