Edible Garden Tour with Cooperation Humboldt
Cooperation Humboldt is excited to reintroduce their annual Edible Garden Tour on Saturday, August 20th. The event will feature residential and community gardens in Arcata and Eureka.
This family friendly event will showcase different permaculture set ups that will be open for self-guided tours from noon to 4:00 p.m. Attendees will be able to explore each garden while gathering ideas to create their own edible garden oasis.
“At Cooperation Humboldt we know that access to nutritious food is a fundamental human right,” said Tamara McFarland, Cooperation Humboldt’s administrative director and Food Team coordinator. “Our food sovereignty projects aim to empower our neighbors to grow more of their own food and this garden tour is a fun way to learn how you can join that movement.”
Advance tickets are required. Tickets are available on a sliding scale. To learn more and to purchase tickets, visit cooperationhumboldt.com. 10% of ticket sales will be paid as a voluntary Honor Tax to the Wiyot Tribe in acknowledgment that the garden sites are located on unceded Wiyot territory.
Other Cooperation Humboldt food sovereignty projects include Little Free Pantries, which provide free food and personal care products available to all; planting fruit trees in areas with public access; setting up mini gardens for low-income families; and converting previously unused lawns into productive gardens.
