Parkdale Tree Tour 22nd August 2007

This arrived in my inbox, and it seems to have a good little tie-tin with community development and local food:


JOIN THE TORONTO TREE TOURS AND GREENEST CITY\'S YOUTH GREEN SQUAD
FOR THE PARKDALE TREE TOUR WEDNESDAY AUGUST 22ND FROM 7PM TO 8:30PM
STARTING AT THE MASARYK-COWAN COMMUNITY RECREATION CENTRE IN PARKDALE.

WHAT: Parkdale Tree Tour
WHEN: Wednesday, August 22, 2007 at 7:30pm
WHERE: Masaryk-Cowan Community Recreation Centre, 220 Cowan Ave, front entrance
WHO: LEAF, Greenest City

Beginning in the beautiful and bountiful HOPE community garden, the
tour will profile the efforts of Greenest City’s Youth Squad to
grow organic food locally while strengthening community ties in their
neighbourhood. We will also visit an historic pear tree likely planted
by a farmer over 150 years ago, and giant century-old elms that
inspired a local street name. Participants will learn easy ways to
start a downtown vegetable garden and grow the urban forest in their
own neighbourhoods.

Pre-registration is not required but we would love it if you did!
