The third annual Central Art Walk and Studio Tour took place in our neighbourhood this past weekend. We've been busy preparing for this event, and despite cold rainy weather we had about 120 visitors! We decided to turn our dining room into a mini cafe for the Saturday, serving hot soup and freshly baked breads to hungry visitors who needed a little break from the tour. There is no other place in our neighbourhood to buy fresh food, no bakeries, cafes, etc. Just one mainstream grocery store, one donut shop, and several convenience corner stores (stocking junk foods and a few other processed foods). So, this neighbourhood surely needs a community meeting place where people can drop by for healthy organic treats. It was nice to offer this on a small-scale basis this weekend.
Thanks to everyone who dropped by the sale! We enjoyed meeting so many neighbours, and many others who are interested in urban farming or homesteading. I wish we would have had time to tour through our yard with each of you, but the conversations we did have were really inspiring and we are glad to have this chance to again open up our home.
