Urban farmers opened their garden gates to community members Saturday morning as part of Cultivate C’ville’s Urban Farm and Garden Tour. The coordinators at each of the tour’s five sites were eager to teach visitors about their efforts to cultivate food and community in Charlottesville neighborhoods.

Stops along the tour included the Urban Agriculture Collective of Charlottesville, Casa Alma, the International Rescue Committee’s New Roots Garden at Fourth Street, the garden at Buford Middle School, and the Fifth Street Community Garden.

Charlottesville Tomorrow visited three of the sites on the tour.
