Urban Teaching Farm Tour

Presented by Urban Roots

We will provide a farm tour of our Urban Teaching Farm, highlighting the fruits, vegetables, flowers and herbs that we grow and what is in season in Spring. We will also highlight the technology of our 3 hoop houses that allow us to grow year round in the high desert. During the tour families will be able to taste some of the produce we have growing on our farm. They will also get to plant seeds and take them home.

Our raised beds are far enough apart for those in wheelchairs and we have a ADA compliant porta-potty onsite. The gravel and small rocks when entering the farm can be a bit tricky to navigate with a wheelchair, but we are happy to assist folks.  Those under 18 must be accompanied by an adult at all times and everyone will need to complete a waiver. Close-toed shoes are recommended. For more information, visit urgc.org.
