Our sponsor today is the Rice Design Alliance’s 2016 spring home tour. Thanks for sponsoring Swamplot!

This spring the Rice Design Alliance’s annual home tour is entitled “Nourish.” It’s a tour of 6 Houston houses that have edible gardens, created by architects, landscape architects, and designers. “If our kitchen is the heart of our house,” says tour chair and landscape architect Flora Yeh of Mirador Group, “our edible garden would be a nurturing extension. The homes on this tour share an integral theme, a way of life.”

“Nourish: An Architecture Tour of Houses and Edible Gardens,” the RDA’s 41st annual architecture tour, takes place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on 2 days: Saturday, April 9, and Sunday, April 10.

Tickets start at $35, which includes an eMembership, providing a year of digital communications from RDA. Current RDA members (as well as those who join in time for the tour) are eligible for discounted tickets at $25; tickets are $15 for students with ID. You can buy tickets online here.
