The tour runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and starts at the South End Branch of the Boston Public Library (685 Tremont St.). 

Tickets are $ 20 in advance; $ 25 day of event. Proceeds benefit the South End & Lower Roxbury Community Gardens through Boston Natural Areas Network, a nonprofit organization that protects community gardens and urban green spaces. You can buy a ticket here
