In 20 11 and 2012 the annua l Urban Farm Tour featured extraordinary examples of city residents who are making our city more sustainable by growing their own vegetables, raising chickens, keeping bees, catching rain water, implementing energy savings solutions and more.
These wonderful hosts are willing to inspire others with their knowledge, their successes, and the lessons th at they have learned once again in 2013.
This self-guided tour will include 20-25 sites to visit, all within 8 to 10 miles of Downtown Greenville. Our goal is to show city residents just how easy it is to practice sustainable living by growing food and implementing energy efficiency right where we live, work and play.
Highlights of this year's event include:
- Pre-event Farmer Appreciation Banquet at Crescent Studios
- Self-Guided Bicycle Tour
- Workshops on site and at UFT Headquarters all free of charge with UFT ticket
- Sponsor Exhibits at the UFT headquarters.
- End of Tour Concert at UFT headquarters.
