Urban Farms Tour

Throughout Los Angeles, urban farming is quietly transforming under-utilized land into environmentally regenerative, high-producing edible landscapes. Accompany us as we learn more about sustainability, gardening, farming, community and feast upon a bounty of incredibly delicious and healthy food. This tour will visit hidden urban farms that grow in residential gardens and unlikely locations in the middle of a bustling city setting while reimagining community as a place where people, food and plants thrive.
