NoCo Urban Homestead Tour

Saturday, July 31, 2021

Enjoy a glimpse into the backyards of inspiring Northern Colorado homesteads during our eighth annual NoCo Urban Homestead Tour, a fundraising event benefiting the Gardens on Spring Creek and Loveland Youth Gardeners.

The mission of this event is to educate the public about a self-sustaining lifestyle that includes growing your own produce, raising bees and backyard animals, season extension, food preservation, re-purposing materials and much more. The tour will feature local homesteads across Fort Collins and Loveland that demonstrate how these rewarding practices can be achieved in urban backyard settings.    

Now Accepting 2021 Homestead Nominations!

Do you know someone who grows fruits or vegetables? Has chickens, goats, or bees? Is interested in composting or season extension? Preserves their own food? Maybe that someone is you!

We are now accepting nominations for Fort Collins and Loveland area homes to be featured on the 2021 NoCo Urban Homestead Tour.  You can nominate your neighbor, yourself or anyone else you know!  Featured homesteads enjoy special perks and are critical to the success of this event – click here to learn more.
