Volunteers sought for the 2014 Lawrence Food Garden Tour

577372_419024024783995_2048004927_nIf you love to garden, this request for volunteer gardens from the Lawrence Food Garden Tour may be just for you:

Would you like to share your garden with people who want to learn how to grow food? Do you want to support a community event that benefits all of Lawrence? The Lawrence Food Garden Tour is a FREE community tour showcasing a wide variety of food growing options inside the city limits of Lawrence. Now in our 6th year, we are an all-volunteer group dedicated to helping people learn how to grow food in every way possible.

We are seeking gardens of all sizes and types for this year’s tour on June 7th from 9-noon and 5-8PM. The only requirement is that some of what you grow must be edible – vegetables, fruits, berries, herbs, etc. Participants are required to complete the registration form linked below, attend 1 pre-tour meeting and be present in their gardens during the tour. There are no fees or gimmicks – this is tour about growing food, not making money.

The most common comment we get from participants is how much fun they had sharing their garden with the community. Whether you’re a beginner or you’ve been gardening for years, we’d love to hear from you! If you would like to be considered for the tour, please click on the link below and complete the application form. It will only take a few minutes. We plan to finalize the list of gardens by April 2nd, so don’t wait! We look forward to hearing from you!
