Tour de Garden, the annual tour of some of midtown Omaha’s most beautiful community gardens, returns this Sunday, Aug. 31, from 9-12. The public is invited to visit neighborhood community gardens, where volunteers will greet them and tell them about their gardens.

As a self-guided bicycle ride, participants can start at any of the participating gardens, and a suggested route map will be available all garden sites. A group ride will depart from the Omaha Bicycle Company at 6015 Maple at 9 a.m.

Note: bicycling is encouraged but not required!

Participating gardens include the Benson Rain Garden at 58th and Maple; an Urban Fruit Orchard; and the Benson, Big Garden, City Sprouts, Dundee, Farnam Farm, Gifford Park, and Root Down Community Gardens. Several of the garden sites are refugee gardens.

Again this year, there will be a post-ride party starting at noon at the Benson Community Garden, 1302 N. 60th St., with live music and a garden salsa contest.
