Flower Farm Tour Followed by Cocktails at Fair Shares!

Sorry for the short notice, everyone. You're invited to a fall farm tour at Urban Buds City Grown Flowers on Sunday, October 18th at 1:00p.m. 4736 Tennessee, 63111.

Here's a map that shows directions from Urban Buds to Fair Shares.

We'll make it a quick tour of about 45 minutes, and then head over to Fair Shares for a little cocktail party immediately following the tour.

Please RSVP by noon Friday by emailing sara@fairshares.org.
