Urban Farms Bike Tour

Volume 15, Issue 34; 07 Dec 2012

As part of “Eat Drink Local Week”, I participated in the Urban Farms Bicycle Tour.

This week, unfortunately the week I'm @@NO TARGET@@ is edible Austin’s “Eat Drink Local Week” benefiting the Sustainable Food Center and Urban Roots.

I left on Sunday, so the only event I could participate in was the Urban Farms Bicycle Tour on Saturday.

That's about 35 miles with stops at a whole bunch of urban (or at least suburban) farms and community gardens. The number and variety of urban farm spaces is amazing and inspiring: back yard gardens, front yard gardens, community gardens, grade schools with chicken coops, even a farm with aquaculture.

I tried to remember to take pictures at each stop, though I missed a couple.Yes, I know the photos should be on the map on this page. It's on my todo list!.

I'm really sorry I missed the rest of the week.
