The Urban Garden Tour is FREE and open to everyone! Seven local food producing gardens will open their gates for visitors, educational activities and tours. There is no cost to visit the gardens. Local chefs will be preparing small bites for sampling and local (nonalcoholic) drinks will be available. Register below to join the tour and to purchase food and beverage tickets. To sample at every garden, tickets are $35 in advance. You will receive a tasting punch card when you check in at the West Asheville Park Pavilion. This will be a rain or shine event!
Here is a link to a bike route created by Asheville On Bikes on their Ride with GPS App for folks who would like to take the self guided tour by bicycle. Many of the gardens are quite close together, so walking is also an option. Our goal is to raise awareness about urban agriculture and long-term food security solutions in uplifting the work of organizations, businesses, and nonprofits. We want to celebrate all we can grow with inclusivity, collaboration and a low carbon footprint.
