Grow! Don’t mow.
Sustainable Ballard invites you to our walking / biking tour of NW Ballard food gardens.
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. Tour includes more than a dozen gardens to explore within walking distance of the Ballard P-Patch. $10 supports Sustainable Ballard’s community projects.
Saturday June 28, 2014, 10am – 3pm.
Buy your ticket/map at the start point: Ballard P-Patch / Our Redeemer’s Lutheran Church parking lot, NW 85th Street & 25th Avenue NW, on the day of the tour.
