Tours are FREE of charge but donations are accepted by the tour organizers. All donations collected will go to a different community garden so they can build raised beds, buy tools and continue to grow. RSVP on their website (see link below) is required to guarantee your seat on the bus.

Tours are in conjunction with the exhibit, “City Is A Community Garden,” which looks at urban gardens, vertical farming in the city, and urban chicken keepers through photographs, architectural drawings, and installations. You’re welcomed to view this indoor exhibit before or after the tour.
