Sustainable Ballard 13th Edible Garden Tour

June 25 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Cost: $15 donation*.  Sustainable Ballard Supporting Members are FREE.
Children 10 and under are free (no registration required).

The 13th Edible Garden Tour will be hosted with current state and local COVID precautions. Some gardens may require masking. Some gardens may also prohibit pets.

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. 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! 

The tour includes many gardens to explore within walking distance of each other in Southwest Ballard. The tour is self-guided. Just bring your ticket to pick up your tour map at the start point. *Start point to be determined.

As anyone who’s recently tried to find vegetable seeds or plant starts can attest, 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. Children 10 and under are free! Sustainable Ballard Supporting Members are FREE. Now in its 13th year, the Edible Garden Tour has been an inspiration to hundreds of gardeners every summer.

This event is still in planning — please return back for more information soon!
