Urban Farms Tour is This Weekend

Urban Farms Tour is This Weekend

Postby JoLynne on Sat Jun 22, 2013 9:46 am

So many more people are starting gardens in the city and the suburbs, even raising chickens and honeybees. Want to learn more or get started? Kansas City's Urban Grown Farms & Gardens Tour (one of the largest of its kind in the country) is this weekend.

Come and see me this afternoon at my daughter's school -- Kansas City Academy -- which is one of the tour locations and where I"ll be volunteering as a greeter. They have a school garden the kids help tend. Classes at the school use the garden as a resource. And the chef (with a staff of student assistants) cooks healthy school lunches using fresh ingredients from the garden.

Here's some information about our stop on the tour: http://www.cultivatekc.org/urbangrowntour/tour-sites.html#item4274559

I have gone on the Urban Farm tour & there are some places that have very cool ideas. Do you know of any places that are doing hay bale gardening?
