This year’s Edible Garden Tour showcased 19 gardens in Southwest Ballard(Sunset Hill and Adams) and had over 179 attendees on June 25th. We pulled it off with a planning team of 7, our 19 gracious garden hosts, and the help of 6 more volunteers. This year’s tour began at Sunset Hill Community Center and the weather was perfect for our 13th annual self-guided event.
The event was a big success, with our largest attendance yet. We sold over 220 tickets and 106 raffle tickets for fantastic prizes from our generous sponsors: Swanson’s Nursery, Limback Lumber, Dirt Exchange, Mimi’s Zero Waste Market and New Roots Organics. It was a truly beautiful day in the neighborhood and a great opportunity for community members to connect and learn more about edible sustainable gardening practices.
We would like to extend a big thank you to everyone who came out to join us and look forward to seeing you again on this year’s tour which will feature gardens in Northeast Ballard. Get inspired, learn from your neighbors and grow your own food! Contact Alyssa for more information on the upcoming 14th Annual Edible Garden Tour.
