Whatcom County Extension has updated its list of community food gardens that can be visited during a public tour from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8.
Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and explain how people can participate next season.
Most of the Bellingham gardens on the tour are Community First Gardens, a project of Washington State University Whatcom County Extension, with a grant from The Mary Redman Foundation.
The latest garden added to the tour is the Cordata garden, 50 raised beds at the north end of Cordata Parkway.

A Sudden Valley garden on Lake Louise Road previously listed is not an official stop on the tour.
