About the event: Join us for 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. The tour includes multiple gardens to explore within walking distance of each other in Southwest Ballard. Plan to spend a day walking or biking through Ballard to discover how your neighbors raise urban fruits and vegetables. Gardeners will be on hand to answer your questions. 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!
There has been a renewed interest in edible gardening these past couple of years 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!
*Your $15 donation supports Sustainable Ballard’s community projects. Now in its 13th year, the Edible Garden Tour has been an inspiration to hundreds of gardeners every summer.
Thank you to our sponsors!
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!
