Urban Homestead Tour: Tickets Now Available!
Saturday, September 28th
10:00am – 3:00pm
$5 per person
Organized by Denver Botanic Gardens and Heirloom Gardens
Interested in sustainable home practices, self-sufficiency, and lifelong learning? Then join us on Saturday, September 28th for the 4th annual tour of local urban homesteads. See food production, chicken- and goat-keeping, backyard bees, natural building, composting, sustainable design, and more applied in all kinds of spaces and neighborhoods.
This self-guided tour is open-house style (a bit of “choose your own adventure!”). Tour hosts are opening up their homesteads between the hours of 10:00am and 3:00pm. You will receive a map with marked tour stops and descriptions of each homestead. You decide where you want to go, how many homesteads you want to visit, and how long you want to spend at each stop. Mapping out your route beforehand is recommended.
Heirloom Gardens (i.e. Sundari, Brian, and Ela’s house) will be a stop on the urban homestead tour! If you visit our homestead you will see:
- Front- and back-yard gardens (heirloom vegetables, herbs, berries, and fruit trees)
- Dwarf dairy goats
- Hoophouse greenhouse
- Canning (equipment and examples of canned goods)
- Goat milk soapmaking (equipment and examples of soap)
Register online (see “Buy Now” below) and receive an emailed PDF map of tour hosts and descriptions two weeks prior to the event. Additionally, you can purchase tickets from Heirloom Gardens after the Backyard Chickens talk at the Denver County Fair (Friday, August 9th at 2:oopm, Animal Pavilion).
