Ward 6 Community Garden Bike Tour

Wikipedia tells us that "agriculture was the key development in the rise of sedentary human civilization, whereby farming of domesticated species created food surpluses that nurtured the development of civilization" and that's great and all, but being sedentary is no fun, unless you're sedentary on a bike seat and you have the chance to do that on Sunday while also exploring the city and basking in the glory of 10,000 years of continued human agriculture. What do they grow in these gardens? Do they grow community? Do they grow turnips? Who knows? I'll tell you who knows- future people, namely the people in the future, around Monday or so, who went on this bike ride and visited these community gardens. But only the future people who were present because they found the time to forsake being sedentary to see the very thing which allows us all to the sedentary. That's assuming, of course, that the future people can even remember what they saw because the thing wraps up with a happy hour at the Passenger.
