Jane's Walk, Sat May 5th here in the neighbourhood
We are participating in the upcoming "Jane's Walk" again this year. This walk is organized across Ontario in honour of Jane Jacobs, a visionary urban planner who lived and worked in Toronto. She was passionate about creating liveable cities with walkable, vibrant neighbourhoods. The Jane's walk honours her work through the organizing of free guided walking tours of various neighbourhoods across our cities. In our particular neighbourhood the theme of the 1.5 hours tour is "Industrial past and post-industrial future". The organizers will tour participants through several former industrial buildings (now studios, living spaces, etc), as well as dropping by at Little City Farm where we will talk about possibilities for positive use of urban lands from the perspective of food production and sustainability. Here is the link for more details.
