Kansas City, Missouri’s Urban Farms and Gardens Tour is scheduled for June 28, 10am-5pm, http://urbanfarmstourkc.com/. The Kansas City Center for Urban Agriculture is the sponsor. Pre-Tour Events started June 18 and continue through June 27. The theme is Food from the City, For the City. “Growing food is something that is, and should be, happening in the
neighborhoods where we live, work, shop and play,” they say.
The tour is self-directed, $5 for an individual ticket or $12 for a family ticket. Thirty sites are included on the tour. Buy tickets at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/57884.
Organizers have posted an Interactive Map, http://www.bing.com/maps/?v=2&encType=1&cid=5B8EAC91E0C832B%21526, to show where the farms are located so you can plan your own tour route.
Tour brochures can be downloaded from http://urbanfarmstourkc.com/.
Check the site for full information on pre-tour events, including a showing of Mad City Chickens Film on Tuesday, June 23, hosted by All Souls UU Documentary Series. 7PM at All Souls UU Church, 4501 Walnut, donations only.
“The film is a sometimes wacky, sometimes serious look at the people who keepurban chickens in their backyards. From experts and authors to a rescuedlandfill chicken or an inexperienced family that takes the poultry plunge, even a mad scientist and giant hen get into the act. It’s a humorous and heartfelt trip through the world of backyard chickendom.”
Includes an interview with me! Do I qualify as wacky or serious?
