The 5th annual Swissvale Edible Garden Tour is a fun, free community event on Saturday, July 22, 2023. This choose-your-own adventure style tour will include gardens throughout the borough, including the spaces of newer, experienced, and more experimental gardeners. Visitors can expect to see a diverse array of edible garden features such as urban chickens, fruit trees, and pollinators. Tour-goers will stop at our info table at the Swissvale Farmers Market to pick up a guide and are then welcome to visit as many gardens as they like, in whichever order they choose. Registration is not required, but if you register on Eventbrite you'll be entered to win a gardening-themed gift basket!*
