“We’re excited to bring back the Urban Farm Tour to offer neighbors an opportunity to see firsthand how community members are transforming their yards into edible and sustainable oases,” said Three Rivers Project co-Coordinator Christine Favilla. “We need help from local volunteers to make this event possible. The Urban Farm Tour is self-guided, so we need community members to greet tourists at each yard, home garden, or community garden along the tour. We’re looking for hosts/tour guides to volunteer at each location, as well, to help make this event a welcoming, fun, and educational experience for all!”
