It’s time for the Greenest City Earth, Food and Culture Festival!

It’s harvest time in the garden, and everyone at Greenest City knows what that means!

This year’s Earth, Food and Culture Festival will be taking place on Saturday, September 24th from noon until 4pm. Come join us in Masaryk park for a fun afternoon of food, entertainment and family-friendly activities. This year, we’re being joined by Bicycle Commons and Mountain Equipment Co-op for a free minor repair and bike tune up clinic in adjacent Dunn Parkette.

Hope to see you there!

Greenest City Earth, Food and Culture Festival

Help us get out of town!!!

Over the past three years, Greenest Cityhas been providing free field trips to
farms and nature areas around the GTA to members of the Parkdale Community. For
many on the field trips, they are a rare opportunity to get out of the city and
into the countryside, for others they are a wonderful chance to meet their
neighbours and fellow-community members.

This is your chance to help us make sure that we can offer field trips again in
2011.

Go to the Aviva website and vote for our project, Get out of Town! at
http://www.avivacommunityfund.org/ideas/acf9345

Whether we are successful depends on you! Registering to vote is easy, and you
can go back and vote every day for ten days. Tell your family, tell your
friends, and help us make sure the Greenest City field trips are in the works
for 2011!

Let’s all get out of town!
