Have you ever wanted to peek into those cool backyards in your neighborhood?  Check out what they are growing and doing? Now is your chance!  Our first annual Urban Farm Tour will feature some of the best urban farms here in West Seattle! It’s fun, affordable, and family-friendly!  All kids under 18 are free!

We love to provide opportunities for neighbors to work together, families to bond and communities to get stronger and more self-sufficient. By bringing you an exciting tour of urban farms we hope you get inspired to do something in your yard, or in your neighborhood, to produce local, sustainable, organic food. GROW a better food system!! Provide for your family and share extra with those in need!

As a native Seattleite I love this city so much and want to inspire you to make your neighborhood even more amazing! So grab breakfast with some friends and head out on this one-day awesome tour of urban farms right here in West Seattle!! Maybe next year YOUR urban farm will be featured!!

See you on the Tour!
