Detroit Agriculture Network Tour of Urban Gardens and Farms

This Wednesday, August 4th is the 13th Annual Detroit Agriculture Network Tour of Urban Gardens and Farms. You must register in advance! Last year’s rides sold out.

The tour will feature five routes, including bus tours to eastside, westside, and central city gardens and two bicycle routes weaving through downtown gardens. All tours will leave from Catherine Ferguson Academy, located at 2750 Selden in Detroit. Sign-in begins at 5:00pm and tours will leave at 6:00pm sharp. After the tour, a reception featuring locally-grown food prepared by local restaurants and chefs will provide visitors with a delicious taste of Detroit! Registration begins July 6th and early registration is strongly recommended. You can register by contacting Ashley Atkinson 313-237-8736 or When registering, please give the name of every person attending the tour and specify which tour, bus (east, west, or central) or bike tour you prefer. The fee for the tours is a sliding scale of $1 – $20 to offset costs and help grow Detroit’s agricultural movement.

This is one of the most excellent bike tours you can do in the city of Detroit. It supports a great cause and the post-ride meal focused on Detroit-grown produce is the best.
