Tour Heats Up

Riders depart from Weavers Way Farm

The third annual Philadelphia Urban Farm Bike Tour was another huge success, despite the undesirable heat wave that’s hit the city.  Nearly 100 riders braved the scorching weather to take a look at six urban agriculture projects, which included Weavers Way Farm, Martin Luther King High School Farm, Mill Creek Farm, Spring Gardens Community Garden, Teens4Good/Philly Orchird Project, and GreensGrow.  The ride finished with a well deserved pizza and beer party at the Philadelphia Brewing Company.  Thank you to all the riders who came out to participate – it was a blast meeting everyone and sharing our passion for urban farming!   Your generous donations will go to support these important projects! 

Here’s a slide show of the pictures I took.  Feel free to visit the Flickr page too.
