NOTE: Our Urban Farm’s Tour Series are outdoor events as we tour these yards, and while the weather is great for our plants this time of year it can be a bit warm for our persons. So please bring water, wear or carry sun protection, and wear comfortable shoes. Also, some of these are private residences and they are kindly opening their yards for large groups of us, so we do not offer restroom facilities.
