Event Description
The Lots of Green - Bike and Bus Tour is an event co-hosted by GTECH Strategies and Grow Pittsburgh to connect individuals to community greening projects. Tour goers have the opportunity to experience everything from a full scale urban farm in Braddock, a city hop yard in Garfield, an 88-bed community garden in the South Side, a recycled play yard in East Liberty as well as other projects in Homewood, Larimer, Lawrenceville, Homestead, Wilkinsburg and Millvale.

The event will take place on Saturday, August 10, 2013 in conjunction with Bike PGH’s annual Bike Fest. The tours will be starting throughout the morning and early afternoon and will end with an after party from 12:00-5:00 pm at our office building at 6587 Hamilton Avenue in Larimer.

There will be two guided bike routes offered: a 32 mile route leaving at 9:00 am and a 2.5-7 mile route leaving at 10:00 am. The 1.5 hour bus tour will be leaving at 10:30 am, 12:30 pm, and 2:30 pm. Each route will have plenty of stops to give participants time to talk with community gardeners, to tour each garden, and to learn more about the neighborhood and site.

All the tours will leave from our parking lot - 6587 Hamilton Ave, PGH, PA 15206 and return there for the after party.

We'll have DJ Dave Zak spinning tunes to get you in the touring spirit and our neighbors, Commonplace Coffee will be selling their java for morning tour goers.

The cost of the ride is $10, which includes either a guided bike or bus tour and entry to the after-party. Join us afterwards for beer, food vendors, and activities. All are welcome to attend the after party - even those who did not participate in the tour.
