On December 4, the Urban Farm Bicycle Tour brought nearly 100 two-wheeled visitors to our garden, our biggest community event yet!
The bright sunshine and gorgeous 70-degree-weather had everyone in great spirits. Folks who had participated in last year’s tour, prior to our new garden being officially open, marveled about the great progress our gardeners have made.
Members of our garden conducted educational sessions and demonstrations on organic gardening, winter gardening and composting. Cyclists toured garden plots while sipping hot coffee kindly donated by Texas Coffee Traders and lavender lemonade provided by Hot Mama’s Cafe.
The event was organized by The Bicycle Sport Shop as part of Edible Austin’s Eat Local Week.
