Urban Farm Tours
Saturday | October 12, 2019 | 10:00 am — 4:00 pm
Is Urban Farming still alive and kicking in the Bay Area? After a three year break, Urban Farms Tours returns to answer this question. The Institute of Urban Homesteading invite you to visit 8 excellent and diverse examples of small-scale urban farming and decide for yourself. From a tidy postage stamp to a sprawling multi-use community space, the sites range in size from extra small to extra large and represent a diversity of farmers and farming styles. This years tour features some of our favorite sites from past tours, a few new gems, an urban CSA, a model school garden and two amazing community farms. You will see vegetable gardens, composting systems, rooftop garden, urban orchards, bees, greywater, seed saving and more, plus you will get to sample some of what these urban farmers are producing. Each homestead is unique in its interpretation and use of space. This will be a chance to ask questions, get answers and sample some of the bounty these farmers are producing.
