Join us for Backyard Growers' first ever Incredible Edible Garden Tour! The BYG Incredible Edible Garden Tour is a self-guided, fun, walking tour of backyards, schools, and public parks where Gloucester residents make vegetable production, chicken coops, bee-keeping and more work for their urban spaces. Join us July 15th as we celebrate gardening and backyard food production on Cape Ann. The tour will take you around Gloucester for a behind-the-scenes look at community members' garden spaces. Meet the gardeners, see their gardens, and learn their tricks to growing the perfect tomato, producing mass amounts of lettuce or keeping chickens happy and coyote-free! Begin at our office at 271 Main Street where you receive your map, then follow the map to tour the gardens and finish at Cape Ann Brewery for discounts on food and drinks!  Where does it start? All participants will come to the Backyard Growers office on the day of the event to receive their map. The tour is self-guided from there, so participants can visits garden in whatever order they would like between 10am and 2pm. How long is the tour? That is up to the participants! We have asked gardeners to be available at their gardens until 2pm, so please allow yourself enough time so that you are not in gardens after 2 pm. Are there minimum age/ability requirements to enter the event? All are welcome! Children under 15 are free. Because these gardens are on private properties, not all gardens are wheelchair accessible.  Wheelchair accessible gardens are marked on the map. What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event? Transportation is up to the individual, Backyard Growers will not have transportation available. Parking will be marked on the map.  Gardens are grouped such that participants can walk to each garden from the parking locations provided. What can I bring into the event? Bring your friends and family! Water bottles are suggested, particularly in hot weather.  PLEASE NO DOG
