Ecological Garden Tours, organized by TIME’S UP! and led by well-informed guides, these bicycle rides to endangered and protected gardens usually end with bicyclists honing their own horticultural skills and sampling a garden’s organic produce.
Some of our rides are tours of community gardens. Other rides have ecological and/or community themes, which makes them ideal places to visit. We may ride to raise awareness of a garden in need of defense, and sometimes we ride just to celebrate their existence.

We also organize garden events to accompany some of the tours.
A number of these rides and events are collaborations with other groups, ranging from community garden collectives to neighborhood associations to other ecology organizations.
