Sandlot, the latest restaurant from Spike Gjerde's Foodshed group, has a stunning outdoor setting with food to match.

Beginning at Bird in Hand in Charles Village, the bike tour will stop at four urban farms (Whitelock Community, Boone Street Farm, Real Food Farm and Living Classrooms), as well as three of Foodshed's properties. Growers at each farm will speak to tour guests about what it takes for their urban farms to thrive.

Tickets, $75, include a commemorative water bottle, four farms visits, and stops and snacks at three of Foodshed's restaurants: coffee at Bird in Hand, lunch at Parts & Labor in Remington, and a pig roast and beer at Sandlot in Harbor Point to cap off the ride.

Beatty Development Group and Foodshed, Spike Gjerde's restaurant group, are partnering to make Harbor Point 

Tickets are available through MissionTix, and a portion of their sales will go back to the each of the farms along the tour.
