Press Release – Garden Hop

From a Fair Food Matters press release…

Hop through community gardens in August

At least two dozen area community gardens will take part in the “Garden Hop,” a community-wide garden tour and scavenger hunt, taking place throughout town from August 10-20.

The event is coordinated by Common Ground, a collaborative effort whose goal is to support community garden projects throughout Kalamazoo County, with a special emphasis on those serving low-income residents.

In addition to learning more about the great variety of garden projects in our community, participants can take part in a scavenger hunt. Anyone who correctly answers 12 questions about local gardens will be entered into a prize drawing.

Gardens scheduled to take part in the 2012 Garden Hop include (all located in Kalamazoo, except where noted):

Garden Hop tour guides, with a final list of participating gardens, and scavenger hunt entry forms will be available on August 10 at the Common Ground website (, and at the following locations:

The Garden Hop is made possible through donations from Old Dog Tavern, People’s Food Co-op and Wenke Greenhouses.
