Description

Did you know that there is a thriving student garden program at many DC public schools? Join us for a leisurely bicycle tour of three wonderful school gardens, followed by an informal happy hour at District Hardware & Bike at the Wharf!

The school garden bike tour is co-sponsored by the District of Columbia Office of the State Superintendent of Education’s School Gardens Program, District Hardware & Bike, FoodCorps DC, and Slow Food DC, with the aim of highlighting budding school gardens throughout the city.

We'll meet at District Hardware and at each stop, learn about the schools’ garden programs, explore the garden spaces, and experience the sights and smells of the garden. At one of the stops, we'll even help with planting some veggies for the students to enjoy when they return to school in the fall. We will end the ride back at District Hardware to enjoy happy hour refreshments for purchase at the Velo Cafe.

While this event is free, we ask that participants register and consider and optional $10 donation that will go directly to the school garden programs visited on the tour.

For our June 2019 tour, we will visit the following school gardens in southeast DC:

Amidon-Bowen - 401 I St SW, Washington, DC
Van Ness - 1150 5th St SE, Washington, DC
Tyler - 1001 G St SE, Washington, DC
