The organization aims to promote the benefits of eating locally by helping Toronto homeowners make use of their harvests. Not Far From the Tree is partnering with other organizations to put on two great events this month in the city:
City Cider – On September 18th, 2011 from 1-5 pm, visit The Orchard at Spadina Museum for live music, cider, yoga for kids, and more!
Harvest Festival – On September 22, 2011 from 4-7 pm, come out to Ben Nobleman Park Community Orchard for free fruit and snacks, orchard tours, children’s activities, and more!
Not Far From the Tree is also using green transportation! Check out the new cargo bikes it will use to share fresh fruit from trees in Toronto.
Why should you go local? Laura explained it in this guest post she wrote for our blog last year. Inspired by Laura’s work, Greenheroes created the Tasting Local Foods campaign in which we share information on how you how you can grow and eat locally.
