Take Sustainable Ballard's 9th annual self-guided walking / biking tour of twelve-plus Ballard urban farms and food gardens. The tour features many creative ways to grow food in urban spaces, including the use of parking strips, containers and raised beds; easy to construct chicken coops and bee houses; many varieties of fruit trees, berry bushes and edible ground covers, in addition to your traditional garden bed. Meet gardeners and ask questions; learn from their experience. Your $10 entry fee goes to support Sustainable Ballard's community projects.

Grow, don't mow! Our goal is to educate and inspire folks to grow food by giving examples of creative gardening. The Edible Garden Tour has been an inspiration to hundreds of gardeners every summer.

Do you like to grow your food?
Can you do it in your 'hood?
Would you do it with your hands?
Would you do it on your lands?
Could you do it in a pot?
Could you do it on your lot?
Would you, could you in the rain?
Would you, could you feel no pain?
Would you garden on a boat?
Would you garden with a goat?
Would you plant a rutabaga?
Would you like a ripe tomata?
Could you grow food here or there?
Could you garden anywhere?
Would you garden in a box?
Would you garden in your crocs?
Would you garden in the shade?
Would you garden with a spade?
You can plant what you want to eat!
You can harvest, what a treat!
Plant a seed! Oh, gosh, oh gee!
Try it! Try it! You will see!
