This self-guided tour showcases the diversity of community and personal food gardens within the city limits. Gardens will include produce, herbs, perennials, fruit trees, berries, native plants, raised beds, permaculture, companion planting, water harvesting, chicken-keeping and much more. Gardeners will be on site to give tours and share garden knowledge and inspiration.
