Manette Edible Gardens Tour 2013

The 2nd annual Manette Edible Gardens Tour de Coop happened earlier this month on Saturday, August 3rd.  My company for that day was my 6-year-old nephew, Preston, and 3-year-old niece, Olive.  I would be lying if I said that I did not have an agenda.  My goal was to not only give them an unforgettable experience, but to also plant a seed in their young minds that growing food is an awesome thing to do.

Photos from the day are below.  Enjoy!

Olive spotted a pumpkin.

This generous man led Preston and Olive to the peas being grown in his family's garden, and was kind enough to share with them.

The chickens were a highlight of the tour.

Despite the fact that this garden was not on the tour (it was featured in 2012), this wonderful gardener shared handfuls of peas and carrots with Preston and Olive.

Garden booty!

Next year’s tour will happen on Saturday, August 2nd.  If you’re interested in learning about composting, integrated gardening, urban bee keeping, and small space gardening, it’s not to be missed!  If you live in the Manette area of Bremerton and want to be featured on the tour, contact manetteediblegardens@gmail.com.
