October 3rd (this Saturday!). Harvest Ride: Bike tour of collective urban gardens

Grab a bike and join your neighbors for a Harvest Ride, a 26 mile randonneuring bike tour of collective gardens and worker-owned food cooperatives in our region.

From the Arboretum’s Washington Youth Garden to Riverdale MD’s Master Peace Community Farm, with Ledroit Park’s Common Good City Farm and Ft Totten’s Neighborhood Farm Initiative in between, there’s plenty to celebrate during the rise of the full moon closest to the Fall Equinox -the Harvest Moon. This event is free. For more info visit Common Good City Farm.
