Get your grow on with DC's first Edible Urban Garden Tour hosted by Loulies.com.
Explore city spaces and residential gardens that will open their doors and gates for the public to see what growing good food in our own backyards, front yards, rooftops, and empty lots is all about. It’s a chance to ask questions, learn from and hear what inspires some of DC’s best gardeners.
The tour will start at Old City Green, a beautiful, plant-filled garden shop and will stretch through the revitalized neighborhoods of Shaw, Bloomingdale and Ledroit Park. Plus, see for yourself and learn more about Common Good City Farm, the community garden that Prince Charles recently toured as part of his inspiring Future of Food visit to DC. Tickets: $10 (online or cash the day of)
The tour is self-guided and will cover several miles so a bike or a car is recommended.

‘Wildman’ Steve Brill, America’s foremost urban forager, will guide the culinary exploration. This edible tour will lead participants through the forested streets of Mt. Pleasant in search of wineberries, dandelions, walnuts and all the other undiscovered wild foods that grow in the city.
There will be two 90-minute hands-on tours that will focus a new lens on the urban landscape and illuminate the rich ecology hidden in plain sight between the city streets.
As our tour draws to a close, Pleasant Pops will serve up special ‘foraged’ pops featuring fruits and herbs collected in the District. Steve Brill will curate the tour and lead a discussion about how our conventional food system has drawn our attention away from the abundance that grows just steps away from our homes. Tickets: $15 (online or cash day of)
