This family-friendly ride is perfect for anyone interested in learning more about urban farming and supporting the local food movement.
Riders will stop at four farms and learn about them and their histories and how urban farming is taking hold in St. Louis. Bring a backpack so you can purchase produce. Riders can also sign up for CSA (Community Supported Agriculture) shares, a pledge to support a farm operation and receive shareholder benefits. More information about CSAs will be available at the ride.
