Take a guided tour of several community gardens in the Kalamazoo area and learn how these gardens are improving neighborhoods, building community, and encouraging healthy lifestyles in Kalamazoo. In addition to our tour guides there will be a garden member at each garden to answer specific questions.
We are offering two tour options:
BUS TOUR: Enjoy the comfort of a chartered air-conditioned bus, while our tour guide tells you about the Common Ground community garden network. The bus will be stopping at 5 gardens with very different goals and approaches to gardening.
BIKE TOUR: If you want to be a little more active, you can join the bicycle tour which will peddle to 6 different community gardens in Kalamazoo. This is a 12 mile leisurely ride on trails and urban streets. Riders should have good urban/city riding skills.
Both the Bus and the Bike tour will start and end at the old Riverside Greenhouse. There’s plenty of parking. Arrive early, the tour leaves promptly at 6:00.
When you register, please give us your name(s) contact info, and let us know if you are doing the bus tour or the bike tour.
