Backyard Locavore Tour

The Food and Dining section in today’s Press Herald includes a preview of the Backyard Locavore Tour taking place this weekend.

This Saturday, participants in the fourth annual Backyard Locavore Tour will have a chance to explore [Jerry] Lord’s homestead and the food-producing backyards of 12 other homeowners in Brunswick, Cape Elizabeth, Falmouth, North Yarmouth, Portland and Windham. The event is sponsored by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, and tickets for the self-guided tour cost $10 in advance and $15 the day of the event. Hundreds of people buy tickets to the tour each year.
