Mansfield’s first ever community garden walking and biking tour will be held on Saturday, August 16.

Registration for the Tour de Fleur: Community Garden Walk/Bike Tour will be 12:30 - 1 p.m. at the North End Community Improvement Collaborative (NECIC), 199 N. Main Street, Mansfield.

All the tours are FREE, and start at 1 p.m. Walkers can choose the short route (2 miles round trip) and see 6 community gardens, or choose to continue on and see 4 additional gardens.

While the cyclists' route will be about 6 miles and tour up to 11 gardens. Participants will be guided in groups so they can learn along the way about these collaborative food gardens. A stop of up to 15 minutes is scheduled at each garden, and garden organizers will share their vision as we tour their unique community gardens.

Altered Eats will sell fresh lunch items made with locally grown ingredients. Their food truck will be stationed at the Welcome Garden on Marion Avenue from 1-4 p.m., and then will move to South Park as part of a celebration hosted by Friends of Mansfield Parks (FOMP) beginning at 4 p.m.

The Tour de Fleur: Community Garden Walk/Bike Tour is intended to highlight the impact of community garden efforts in Mansfield and to encourage green transportation. Participants should bring their own bikes or comfortable walking shoes.

The event is organized by AmeriCorps Summer VISTA Madonna Brock in partnership with NECIC, the Raising Richland Community Garden Network, Richland Moves! Active Transportation Advocacy Group, and FOMP.

To RSVP or for more details, contact Madonna Brock at NECIC: 419-525-3101 [email protected]
