LOCALLY GROWN: Take a tour of urban gardens via bicycle

The community garden tour showcases the produce and community growing in Columbia.

COLUMBIA — GetAbout Columbia and the Community Garden Coalition teamed up to promote biking and urban gardening.

Companion planting, controlling runoff, vertical trellises and the keys to growing garlic were a small sample of the tips and techniques gardeners shared with the riders on Saturday morning. The tour showcased seven downtown community gardens — each with its own story and all bountiful in both plants and community.

Thanks for asking. I forgot to attach a map. It's up now. We visited the Broadway Christian Church, Claudell Lane, Ash St., Circus-Lyons, St. Joseph St., Columbia Center for Urban Agriculture and Benton-Stephens gardens in that order.
