Event Description

Mid-summer is a great time to meet with other gardeners and compare notes about how our gardens grow!  Gardening for Life invites you to a Mid-Summer Food Garden Tour and Talk at bio-diverse community based gardens plus a barn tour followed by a picnic lunch (bring your own).

The tour is free and open to the public. Our hosts will share their experience in what thrives as well as coping with unpredictable weather, pests and disease. Each one allows for discussion and ends with a picnic lunch overlooking a beautiful bio-diverse farm, full of flowers and veggies.

Tour hosts include Rebecca Purcell, senior coordinator of Hugh Cargill Community Garden; Mary Jane Wuensch, an organic gardener with 35 years of experience; and Kayleigh Boyle and Doug Wolcik, the innovative farm managers at Gaining Ground, an organic farm that donates all of its produce to local hunger-relief efforts.

After participating in the 2014 mid-summer tour, Charlene Briggs wrote about the event: “I learned many useful gardening tips and got a lot of fun ideas for my own gardens. I found this tour to be extremely inspiring, especially at this time of the year when my garden is starting to resemble a jungle! Also, it was really fun to meet such wonderful and enthusiastic fellow gardeners. I look forward to many more tours like this.”

Learn about fellow gardeners’ interests, garden creativity, and good practices. 

Gardening for Life is a member of the Gardeners Cooperative and the Concord Food Collaborative.
