Visiting Black Creek Community Farm

DSC0731012 July 2013

A group of Pollinators visited Black Creek Community Farm at Jane and Finch. It is located adjacent to Black Creek Pioneer Village, nested between huge concrete apartment buildings. The 7 acre lot offers a wonderful oasis of fresh vegetables, beautifully grown organic produce and a source of affordable food for local residents. It is a part of Harvest Share program. Young farmers, some of them employees, some interns, are committed to get the best from the land. They kindly gave a big group of visitors a tour on the field, and we had a chance to try to use some of their weeding tools. The grand opening event is taking place on the weekend of 25 July.
