On June 28, 2009 we spent the day in Kansas City at the Urban farms and gardens tour. A self-guided tour of urban farms and gardens in the area. Check out our photos http://blueboathome.com/category/image_galleries/2009/urban_farm_tour
It was great to see so many active farms in the KC area. There is a great use of urban space and it gives a good sense of what people can start doing to have more local food available.
There is also an amazing educational garden at the Kansas City Community Garden. I would highly recommend it for anyone going through KC or living in the KC area, especially if you have kids.
