Yes, this is supposed to be our history page. But with all things that accumulate and don't get placed in their proper spot in a timely fashion, things get messy, and this page looks more like a rummage sale right now. So while we are working on polishing and displaying our past, please follow us in the present on our home page.

Buy a pumpkin at the market, and join us for one last event this season on October 27, starting at 10 a.m.: carve your own pumpkin with us. This is a fun activity for all ages, just in time to scare it up for Halloween!
We will have some carving tools at hand, and... be prepared to go home with pumpkin seeds.

The details of the Urban Heirloom Harvest Fest are slowly coming together, and some changes from our Aug. 31 post need to be made:
Weeds, weeds, wonderful weeds! Gardening and culinary weed expert Dagmar Baur will enlighten gardeners and other workshop participants on the wonderful virtues of the maligned weed. Learn about the many uses of weeds as food, medicine, mulch and green manure. Learn how to identify weeds, and how they act as soil indicators.
Unfortunately educator and cheese connoisseur extraordinaire Julia Rogers won't be able to join the festivities, but no worries, there will be cheese, represented by the Leslieville Cheese Market.
Seeds of Diversity Canada member and urban gardener Roberta Stimac will show you how to save seeds of a few common vegetable varieties, and perhaps send you off with a rotten tomato, or a couple of seeds.
Please note that the workshop time table will be posted at the event, but that most of the other activities will be ongoing from 10 a.m. We also changed the event end time from 2 p.m. to 1 p.m.
