SGGN’s greenhouse part of the Edible Garden Tour in Ballard

Sustainable Ballard is sponsoring a self-guided tour of vegetable gardens in Ballard and the private greenhouse that SGGN uses for all those starts (13,000 of them in 2016) is one of the sites. The tour is Saturday, June 25 from 10 am until 3 pm. It’s a fund-raiser for Sustainable Ballard so the cost is $10 per person. Tickets are available on the day of the event at the tour start point: Ballard Community Center, 6020 28th Avenue NW in Seattle. To learn more about Sustainable Ballard please visit their website. If you’ve always been curious about a simple back yard greenhouse — and all that’s involved in the Sprouts program, or want to learn more about setting up a similar program of your own do visit us on this particular Saturday. (The site is otherwise not open.)
