What's Great in Dayton: May 21 - 27, 2021
Charlie Campbell's picks for what to do and see this week in the Miami Valley
Preservation Dayton has self-guided walking tours of the 10 historically-zoned district areas located in Dayton. These walking tours highlight a few of the architectural and historical features of each area. They ask that you walk carefully as streets and sidewalks can be uneven and it’s important to observe the terrain while you appreciate the historical and architectural features of the area.
On Saturday you can Kick Off for the Giving Garden Challenge. This includes workshops on raised bed gardening, composting organic, urban gardening, and more! It’s at the Agraria Center for Regenerative Practice, 131 E Dayton-Yellow Springs Road, right here in Yellow Springs from 10am to 2:30pm.

This is on June 12th but I’d encourage you to get your tickets now.
