Grow, don’t mow!
Our goal is to educate and inspire folks to grow food by giving examples of creative uses of parking strips, containers, raised beds, bee houses, chicken coops, goats, fruit trees, berries and more! Meet the gardeners and ask questions. The tour includes more than a dozen gardens to explore within walking distance of each other in Central Ballard. Your $10 supports Sustainable Ballard’s community projects.
Now in it’s 10th year, the Edible Garden Tour has been an inspiration to hundreds of gardeners every summer.
Be inspired! Learn from your neighbors!
