Gear Up for Another School Garden Bike Tour

Eastern High School Garden

Eastern Senior High School’s Legacy Garden in full bloom, one of four stops on the upcoming school garden bike tour.

There are many school gardens tucked away throughout the District, quietly teaching DC’s youth about plants, nutrition, soil, and where their food really comes from. On Sunday, September 8, 2013 from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m., join BicycleSPACE and OSSE’s School Garden Program on a ride around the city to experience a few of these gardens and see what beautiful, creative learning spaces they are. Some are newer, some are more developed, but they all could use some help from someone like you — donations will go a long way!

The event will start at BICYCLESpace,1019 7th Street NW, where participants will gather and depart together to tour the city, riding from one school to another accompanied by a bicycle sound system that will add to the fun.

We hope you join us for a beautiful day of gardens and biking, and enjoy helping out a local school garden in a tangible way. This is a great opportunity to learn about some of the wonderful school gardens in the city and help make a big difference for some lucky kids. Please know that, later, you will be able to return to see what your contribution helped create.

If you are interested in participating, kindly reserve a spot at http://dcschoolgardentour3.eventbrite.com/
