This month we filmed on site at the Greenbelt Harvest Picnic, a music festival and vendors market held at Christie Lake Conservation Area to celebrate local food. The film will be part of an episode on local food for the next season of our television show.
We interviewed Gord Downie, one of many artists in the all-star Harvest Picnic line-up. We profiled Gord Downie‘s work to prevent an application from burning tires and support Lake Ontario Waterkeeper in our first season. Here is Gord being filmed by our crew at this year’s picnic.
The television episode features GreenHero Daniel Lanois, an acclaimed musician and record producer for U2, Bob Dylan and others, who organized the first Harvest Picnic last year to raise the profile of sustainable food issues and land conservation.
