Get Out: Tour an edible urban garden
|« PREVIOUS||2 of 5||NEXT »|
Tour: Edible Urban Garden Tour Nothing grates quite like a lecture from a "locavore": Scolds who literally mix food and politics by refusing to buy any product that's traveled more than 100 miles from stable to table, and lecturing those who don't do likewise. While the "buy local" philosophy often makes for pitiful politics, the locavore crowd is right about one thing: Food that's traveled for thousands of miles and grown out of season generally isn't very tasty. So if you believe in letting your palate guide your spending, there's something to be said for urban farming. Yes, hipsters do it. Yes, it can be expensive. But it can also be, well, delicious and convenient.But perhaps the prospect of immediate access to tasty greens and the promise of spiritual renewal via sifting through top soil hasn't sold you. Maybe you need to taste an urban garden for yourself. Lucky you! The District's urban gardens are opening their doors for self-guided tours during Eat Local First week. Check in at Old City Green, and you'll get a map of the area's urban gardens. Afterward, there's a party with booze--which does not discriminate on the basis of a foodie's politics. Tuesday July 17 at Old City Green, 902 N St. NW. Web: http://www.eatlocalfirstdc.com/
