Limited Capacity seats available

The St. Louis Metropolitan Area includes St. Louis City and County. Locally, St. Louis County is divided by directions, known as South County, West County, and North County. Although St. Louis County is the second highest income-producing region in Missouri, economic disparity still exists within North County, which includes the Ferguson municipality. This tour will include a firsthand look at suburban decay and sprawl within North County and the many ways the local community is working on regional improvement and economic development.

This tour will be led by A Red Circle, an organization working to achieve racial equity, increase healthy food access, and promote economic activity within the north St. Louis County communities.

The tour also includes a short workday at United People Market, a locally-based not-for-profit, healthy food market located in Dellwood, Missouri, which is an economically stressed municipality in north St. Louis County. The market sells organic, produce, good for you meats, and locally sourced sauces and other food items at a fraction of the cost of traditional healthy food stores.

We will provide shuttle transportation for all site visits that depart and return to the shuttle stop at Harris-Stowe State University. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your departure time to check in and board the bus.

Tickets are $20. The cost of the tour will cover transportation, light refreshments, and service project materials. Advanced ticket purchase is required at commonbound.eventbrite.com. Tickets may not be purchased on the bus.
