Hang in there… we’re working frantically behind the scenes to prepare the guidebook & map for the Edible Garden Tour. This year, we’re featuring five gardens south of Powell River in the morning, and six gardens in Powell River in the afternoon. The Edible Garden Tour will take place on Sunday August 5, which marks the beginning of the 50 days of the 50-Mile Eat-Local Challenge, ending on the second day of the Fall Fair (Sunday September 23).

The morning gardens will be open for viewing between 9:00 AM and 12:00 noon, and the afternoon gardens from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM. We’re inviting people to spend their midday break at the Open Air Farmers’ Market.

The organizers are excited about this year’s lineup of gardens, and we know you will be too. So keep watching this space for updates. The guidebook & map will be available by the last weekend in July. If you want to be on the email list of the Powell River Food Security Project and receive regular updates about the Edible Garden Tour and all the other food-related activities going on in the region, please contact the Coordinator David Parkinson at david@prfoodsecurity.org.
