Corvallis area residents are invited to participate in a FREE Edible Garden Tour being offered this summer by the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Food Action Team. The tour will take place on Wednesday, August 10 from 5 – 8 pm.
Join us for a self-guided tour of five inspiring gardens in South Corvallis that feature a variety of edibles. All five gardens are within just a few blocks of each other, making the tour friendly to both walkers and bikers. See you at the gardens!

This is the ninth year of the Edible Garden Tours, which are designed to appeal to both new and experienced gardeners. Tours began in 2012 and were held each summer through 2019 but were on hiatus during the height of the pandemic (2020 and 2021).
The goal of the tours is to encourage Corvallis area residents to grow some of their own food. In addition to fostering greater self-reliance, the Food Action Team hopes to involve more people in the joys and health benefits of gardening: regular exercise, fresh air, healthful and delicious food, and a sense of connection to their community — and to the earth!
