A group is putting together a garden tour of the edible gardens of Bloomingdale next Friday, July 26th. Take a look at the flier info below.
Many of these gardens in the tour are put together with the help of Love and Carrots - the organic home gardening group who work with Bloomingdale's (and Eckington's) own, Meredith Sheperd.
Baccio Pizzeria, and the Big Bear Cafe are a part of the tour!
Hope you can make it.

GROW YOUR OWN with the 3rd annual edible urban garden tour hosted by Loulies.com + ChayaDC – Friday, July 26th from 5-8PM.
Our favorite event of the summer – featuring the historic neighborhood of Bloomingdale. The tour starts at Bacio (81 Seaton Place, NW) and ends at Big Bear Cafe (1700 1st Street, NW) with a happy hour featuring a seasonal cocktail. Private and public gardens will be open to view, ask questions and hear tips and advice on how to grow your own food. Garden highlights include growing in containers, fruit trees, herbs, growing techniques, varieties to try, saving seeds and climbing structures for vegetables.
MORE DETAILS: A map of tour locations will be distributed on the day of the event at Bacio. The tour is self-guided and will cover about five miles – a bike is recommended. Then, join us at Big Bear Cafe for a seasonal cocktail. And, please help us support the “grow your own” movement by passing this community event along to friends who may be interested in coming or helping us promote this event.
