Explore food-producing gardens on August 10th

Mark your calendar today to participate in a FREE Edible Garden Tour being offered this summer by the Corvallis Sustainability Coalition’s Food Action Team. The tour welcomes both new and experienced gardeners, as well as anyone who wants to see some amazing food-producing gardens!


The tour will take place on Wednesday, August 10, from 5:00 to 8:00 pm. This self-guided tour of five inspiring gardens in South Corvallis will feature a variety of edibles. 

All five gardens are within just a few blocks of each other, making the tour friendly to both walkers and bikers. Tour locations are as follows:


1465 SE Alexander Ave

645 SE Alexander Ave

465 SE Bridgeway Ave

225 SE Mayberry Ave (NOTE: This site will open at 6 pm.)

470 SE Viewmont Ave


Participants are welcome to begin their tour at any of the above sites and to determine the order in which they visit the various gardens. Host gardeners will be on hand to talk to participants about their gardens and to answer questions. Additional tour features include:


  • A drawing for $50 gift certificates to local nurseries
  • Copies of the 2022 Corvallis Garden Resource Guide available from docents at each site
  • Food vendors at the 1465 SE Alexander Avenue site for those who want to purchase a bite to eat


This is the ninth year of the Edible Garden Tours. Tours began in 2012 and were held each summer through 2019, but have been on hiatus during the height of the pandemic (2020 and 2021). 

The goal of the tours is to encourage Corvallis area residents to grow some of their own food. In addition to fostering greater self-reliance, the Food Action Team hopes to involve more people in the joys and health benefits of gardening: regular exercise, fresh air, healthful and delicious food, and a sense of connection to their community — and to the earth!
