Sites will be selected by a panel of growers, volunteers and Cultivate Kansas City staff to include a diverse variety of sites spread out geographically across the Kansas City Metro area. Sites must be located within 30 minutes of The City Market (20 E. 5th Street, Kansas City, MO, according to Google maps). Especially in areas on the outer edge of tour boundaries, the panel with favor clusters of farm and garden sites because we have seen a strong tendency for higher traffic in areas with multiple sites close together.
