Time: 10 am – 3 pm
Map at the start point on the day of the tour: Our Redeemers Lutheran Church, 2400 NW 85th St
Cost: $10 per person. Kids and Sustainable Ballard supporting members are free. Tour goers will have the opportunity to sign up for a Sustainable Ballard paid membership.
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 11th year, the Edible Garden Tour has been an inspiration to hundreds of gardeners every summer.
Be inspired! Learn from your neighbors!
Do you like to grow your food? Can you do it in your ‘hood?
Could you do it with your hands? Would you do it on your lands?
Could you garden in a box? Would you garden in your crocs?
Would you garden on a boat? Would you garden with a goat?
Could you garden in the shade? Would you garden with a spade?
Do you like a ripe tomata? Want to plant a rutabaga?
Would you, could you in the rain? Would you, could you feel no pain?
Could you grow food here or there? Would you garden anywhere?
You can plant, and sprout and eat! You can harvest, what a treat!
Plant a seed! Oh, gosh, oh gee! Try it! Try it! You will see!
