Farming in the City
GUIDED BUS TOURS
Ever wonder where some of the incredibly tasty food our local Farmers’ Market vendors sell comes from?
Well wonder no longer! Live Local and the Greater Edmonton Alliance (GEA) are proud to present the Farming in the City guided bus tour Sunday August 26, 2012. This will be your chance to tour some of Edmonton’s treasured agricultural lands and meet the farmers who nurture the soils and supply us with their amazing bounty!
Each informative and entertaining 3 hour tour will be led by a guide who will share the history of the northeast food lands. You will have the opportunity to visit a number of producers who will tour you through their farms, allowing you to see, smell, touch and taste the fruits (and veggies) of their labour!
Don’t miss this unforgettable experience to sample some of the delicious products that thrive in our fertile soils and learn about the future of our urban farms!
