Edible Urban Garden Tour
GET YOUR GROW ON with the 1st annual edible urban garden tour hosted by Loulies.com – Friday, July 15th from 5-8PM. Tour starts and ends at Old City Green (902 N Street, NW) with seasonal cocktail and community share.
Gathers some friends and join us as part of this summer’s Eat Local First celebration. BUY TICKETS HERE.
The tour will start at the beautiful, downtown, plant-filled garden shop named Old City Green and stretch through the revitalized neighborhoods of Shaw, Bloomingdale and Ledroit Park, where lots of popular new restaurants, galleries and shops are popping up. Six residential and four public gardens will be open for you to view, ask questions and hear what inspires some of DC’s best gardeners. Garden highlights include, composting, beehives, rain barrels, fruit trees, herbs and lots of ideas for growing vegetables. Plus, see for yourself and learn more about Common Good City Farm the community garden that Prince Charles recently toured as part of his inspiring Future of Food visit to DC.
A map of tour locations will be distributed on the day of the event at Old City Green. The tour is self-guided and will cover about four miles so you can bike or walk.
