The annual Community Garden Tour is a choose your own adventure-style, as we offer a walk, bike, or bus ride (courtesy of Dean Transportation) through our network of gardens in the Lansing area.
Choose the multi-modal transportation option that best suits you and your interest. Each tour will visit gardens in neighborhoods, on school grounds, tucked in apartment complexes, and many other surprising locations.
To kick things off, there will be a potluck and snacks at our Foster Park Resource Center (2401 Marcus St.), as well as a welcome from local organizations and partners.
Show off your cooking skills by bringing a dish to pass or simply show up for a fun evening. Tours will be leaving from the Resource Center by 6:00pm and returning around 8:00pm. As always, anyone is welcome to join us!
We have unlimited space available for the bike and walk, but limited spots for the bus, so please RSVP by calling (517) 853-7809, or by e-mail at carolinne@greaterlansingfo
Hope to see you there! Routes will be shared in the next couple weeks.
