A local garden tour gives people a chance to see where their food comes from.

Five gardens were on display around Charlottesville for the Saturday event, including the City Schoolyard Garden at Buford Middle School.

It was all a part of the Cultivate C’ville Urban Farm and Garden Tour.

The tour aims to increase awareness and access to locally grown food.

One garden educator says it's important for people to know their food can be right around the corner.

“We often think so much of our food coming from rural areas, but there is a lot of land in the city and there is a lot of land in your backyard where if we were growing in all of the available space in the city then we could actually start to make an impact on where our food is coming from locally,” says Emily Axelbaum from the Schoolyard Garden.

Other stops on the tour included the 5th Street Community Garden and the New Roots Garden on 4th street.
