Four West Seattle urban farms are on the list of 25 that you can tour around the city on Saturday, during Seattle Tilth‘s Chicken Coop and Urban Farm Tour – and one of them, “Buried Treasure,” has won a pre-tour award! Buried Treasure (whose urban farmers are shown in a Tilth-provided photo above) have received the “Garden to the Max” award for attributes including efficient use of space. Theirs is one of four West Seattle stops on this year’s tour, which is already in our calendar, but if you haven’t caught it there yet, here’s the description from the Tilth announcement: “Meet people who are incorporating animals and unique gardens into their home landscapes on a self-guided tour. See unique coops, see goats, ducks, bunnies, and bees, and learn what it takes to have a dynamic urban farm. Go on an urban adventure! Tickets are just $12 and $5 for kids, with discounts for groups, bicyclists, and Seattle Tilth members.” Go here to find out more.
