On March 5 from 8 a.m. until 1:30 p.m., the tour will take participants to a variety of small farming operations to showcase hydroponic, aquaponic, community-ran and other kinds of edible gardens.
The tour will end at the Mission Garden for a locally sourced lunch and discussion local food production. Maps, lunch and a donation to the Mission Garden is included in the $25 fee.
More information regarding the specific sites included in the tour will be given upon registration, which can be done on the Feeding Tucson website.
