The 2017 Tour de Farm is a unique full-day bicycle tour of local SW urban farms, an on-farm dinner, and optional overnight camping at Urban Sprouts Farm. The goal of the tour is to promote sustainable lifestyles through urban agriculture and bicycling in Atlanta all while experiencing the city in a fresh, new way.
We’ll be visiting farms in SW Atlanta including Urban Sprouts (start and end point), Crack in the Sidewalk, The Browns Mill Food Forest, Mena’s Farm, Freewheel Farm, Truly Living Well Collegetown and more! In addition to tours at each site, AgLanta will be hosting a mushroom inoculation class. Participants will get to take home an inoculated log at the end of the tour.

The 2017 Tour de Farm is a full day cycling adventure of Atlanta SW urban farms and food sites that includes cycling, delicious locally sourced meals, education, urban farm tours, a mushroom inoculation class, and an overnight farm camping option.
