Have you always wanted to grow veggies at home, or add a fruit tree to your property? Now is your chance to get inspired! Seattle Farm School is hosting their 2nd annual Urban Farm Tour on August 12. The best part? Kids are free!
Your tickets to the Urban Farm Tour grant you exclusive access to step behind-the-scenes of 15 of the best urban farms in West Seattle, White Center, and Burien. It’s amazing what people are doing with their city lots.
Check out raised beds full of veggies, a super productive (and beautiful!) front yard garden, and containers with kid-friendly crops. Explore the dinosaur plant play area at one tour stop, and learn about honey bees at another. And don’t miss the awesome egg-laying chickens that are residents at several of the tour locations.
There’s one extra side benefit to bringing your kids on the Urban Farm Tour. They just might start eating more veggies! Studies show that kids who learn how food is grown, and even better – are involved in the process!, eat an average of one more serving of vegetables per day.
So join Seattle Farm School for the tour on August 12 and bring some of the urban farm inspiration home with you!
For tickets, head over to Seattle Farm School’s site. Prior to the tour date, you will receive a brochure with locations and detailed descriptions of each site, so you can choose your own urban farm adventure.
