    Gardening Ninja's Tour

    Gardening Ninjas Tour!

    Saturday May 13th

    Do you feel like you're battling the elements when gardening in Flagstaff? Join Flagstaff Foodlink on a Garden Ninja Tour and discover the practical and innovative methods community members developed for successful food production and preservation. 

    9 - 11 a.m. Flagstaff EcoRanch - With a focus on education, water conservation, and community, Flagstaff EcoRanch is experimenting in sustainable living and gardening. Join founder Jeff Meilander for a farm tour and learn about growing under hoop houses, new water conservation techniques, and preserving food in a root cellar. Please park and carpool from the parking lot at the bottom of Snowbowl Road. Carpools running at 9 am and 10 am to Ecoranch. Noon - 1 p.m. Forestdale Farm (455 Beech Dr.) - Tour Forestdale Farm's growing operation and see the innovative containers and systems in place that have led owners and Farm Stewards Rylan and Jamie to run a successful CSA and make value-added home- and health-care products. There will be plants, starts, and Farmacy products available for sale.

    2 - 4 p.m. Elden Trails Bed and Breakfast (6073 N. Snowflake Dr.) - Join community leader and bed-and-breakfast owner Marnie Vail on a tour of her small, highly-efficient residential lot that maximizes 4-season growing. You'll see multiple rain water collection systems including 3 cattle tanks and 3 smaller tanks, efficient watering in 2 wicking garden beds, and 1 greenhouse. Take a peek in the carport and learn successful food storage and preserving options. (Additional directions: North on 89 past mall; turn left after light at Smokerise onto Winter (can only turn left); 2 blocks turn right onto Snowflake Drive; we are halfway up hill on left (you will see Elden Trails B&B sign).)
