**Gardens stops will include**

Ms. Marion’s (900 Dante St.)

Grow Me Something (5700 Loyola Ave)

Paradigm Gardens (1131 S. Rampart St)

Paradigm Gardens will be our last stop, and we will arrive at around 3:00-3:30PM. It is just a few blocks down the street from the Zeitgeist.

As always, we will be passing by and pointing out as many smaller gardens as we can, and we are probably going to add a couple more garden stops as well, if possible.

All of the gardens can be found on our Google Map here: http://bit.ly/1HUuUwH

This map is a *work in progress* and will be subject to changes, tweaks and additions up until the day of the event!

This event is free and open to the public. Evamor has donated water for everyone, and in addition to breakfast we are going to have some small local snacks at a few of the stops. Please also be prepared, and bring your own supplies! We will have someone driving a truck to carry supplies from stop to stop. Please make sure your bike is in working order, and bring basic supplies such as a tube, pump, wrenches, patch kit, etc in case of any mechanical issues.

Please note that everyone is individually responsible for safe operation of their bicycles and for following all traffic laws at all times while on public streets. Ample time has been included in the schedule to ensure that everyone can travel at a comfortable pace. Personal safety equipment (helmets and lights) are encouraged. Handouts will be provided at Zeitgeist with a map of all the garden stops, and a live tracker will be posted for anyone that wants to catch up and join at any point.

We look forward to exploring many pockets of local edible flora on our most sustainable, efficient method of travel available: Pedal Power!
Come discover a few of our many local urban garden and farms!
