This 12th Edible Garden Tour will again be hosted with COVID precautions in place – masks required!
As anyone who’s recently tried to find vegetable seeds or plant starts can attest, there has been a renewed interest in edible gardening this year as people spend more time at home and try to make do with fewer grocery trips. Sustainable Ballard hopes that our annual Edible Garden Tour will inspire and inform all the budding gardeners out there! This tour features neighbors like you sharing their gardening tips, not advanced edible gardening!
If you’re new to gardening, we hope that you can join us to see what other gardeners in the neighborhood are doing and get some tips! This is a fun walking or biking tour of neighborhood gardens, planting strips, containers, raised beds, chickens, and all sorts of creative edibles from fruit trees to berries to veggies galore. Plan to spend a day walking or biking through northwest Ballard to discover how your neighbors raise urban fruits and vegetables. Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions.
