This Saturday June 6 at 9 am, we will lead a tour of local food related projects on the Waldorf campus (on which the Village Market is located). Photos: 1. Carrville Community Gardeners (CCG) working the land to grow local vegetables, May 2015. 2. Bulldozers like this one and land development for houses are on the imminent horizon for the land the garden has been using, so the CCG is looking for a new home. Any ideas? 3. Potluck picnic of CCG members with Hesperus in the background. Hesperus is an elder community of about 100 people in 60 some apartments located behind the Toronto Waldorf School. It was greatly expanded three years ago. 4. Last fall, in response to the impending loss of the 4 1/2 acres of garden land to development, Hesperus built several raised beds, to grow food and so the residents could have an experience of gardening. Here we see biodynamic gardening teacher Manfred Palmer with one of the Hesperus gardeners last fall after the beds were built and filled with earth. 5. This spring, starting to grow things in the raised beds at Hesperus. Saturday's tour will also include the Hesperus kitchens and dining facilities, and a brief presentation from the new Hesperus food coordinator Caryn, on where Hesperus is going with local food. 6. The new grade 3 gardens, under construction during the recent Mayfest at the school. 7. The Grade 3 gardens, filled and ready for planting. 8. The steps outside the entrance to the Market, from where the tour will depart at 9 am this Saturday, June 6th. See you there then! 9. More CCG gardener this spring.
