Tour de Farms all about exploring local agriculture
Last year’s Tour de Farms made a stop at Heather Downing and Bob Orbelo’s house on the corner of 19th Street and Forest Avenue in Durango. The couple has chickens as well as about a thousand plants that fill their yard.
A pink hat and sunflower hands made up a scarecrow at the Southside Community Garden during the 2011 Tour de Farms.
Tour de Farms participants last year learned about the garden at Needham Elementary School.

The Aug. 18 event will offer a 5-mile in-town, short-route tour, and a 35-mile long-route loop up Hesperus Hill. Registration is limited to 40 people per event. The cost is $20 per person. A family pack is $50 for two adults and up to two children. Children in carriers are free.
Each tour will feature presentations from farmers and garden directors who will share tools to support the local food system and provide the information to start a farm or backyard garden.
People also may get a brochure and pay at the Colorado State University Extension Office at the La Plata County Fairgrounds, 2500 Main Ave.
