Grow bags 2015
by Marina De Luca-Howard
It is time once again to think about the garden: our grow bags and our front garden, as well as the mulched patch just to the left of the grow bags.
Jutta Mason has generously donated some organic bean seeds. She’s joked they are Jack and the Beanstalk type beans, promising the quick results, will delight our junior gardeners.
Here is the plan for this season:
Companion Planting
Three types of plants per grow bag:
Beans, carrots, squash
Lettuces, herbs

Campbell Park Saturday Supper Menu for Saturday July 25th 5:30-7pm

Please join park staff for a lovely Campbell Park Saturday Supper al fresco inspired by Franco-Italian summers with Cassoulet, Poulet Provencal, with Roasted Aubergines et courgettes and Pasticcini morbidi alle Mandorle(traditional Italian Gluten free almond cookies).

A culinary journey with lavender, rosemary, parsley, thyme and rosewater soothing the senses! Child friendly gf meal, with vegan options. Otherwise top your meal with chevre or Parmesan!

Busy Saturday in the Junction Triangle!

I don't think I've ever seen this many events happening all on the same day in the Junction Triangle. Bikes, bees, butterflies, beauty, bartering, and boxcars*. Here's a quick rundown. Click the links to get more info about each event.

100 in 1 Day Festival:
Three events that are part of the 100 in 1 Day Festival are taking place in the Junction Triangle, along the West Toronto Railpath. All of them help celebrate the awesomeness of our neighbourhood and surrounding areas:

  • West Toronto Railpath Milkweed Planting Day. Railpath at Wallace Bridge, 9am-1pm. Help plant 500 new milkweed plants along the Railpath to provide habitat for monarch butterflies!
  • Buzz on the Bridge. Wallace Ave. Footbridge, 10am-6pm. "Community party with local artists playing music and showing their art, bridge decorating and mural painting for kids and adults and other community building activities. Swing dancing from 12-2".
  • Love Letters to the Junction Triangle, Past Present, and Future. Railpath at Wallace Bridge, 10am-3pm. "A collection of thoughts, feelings and photos of the traditional and newly welcomed communities in the Junction Triangle", with opportunity to submit your own thoughts etc.

Kids and Cargo Bikes, 10am-11am at Perth Square Park, followed by a family ride on the Railpath. Come and show off your own cargo bike, or see what other people have. Some vendors are also coming.

Really Really Free Market, 10am-4pm at Campbell Park. Drop off items to give away for free, or pick up your own free stuff or services. Also, free food. Free. Really. Really.

Really Really Free Market

The Really Really Free Market returns to Campbell Park this Saturday, 10am-4pm.

From the Really Really Free Market Website:

No money. No barter. No exchange. Toronto's Really Really Free Market is returning on June 6th! Bring items that you'd like others to have and take items that others want you to have. You don't need to bring items to take items. We can only accept things that are clean and in working condition - nobody wants dirty socks or broken computer screens. They also don't want underwear, no matter how clean. As a general rule, bring only items in a condition that you yourself would take. We also cannot accept large items as we have no way of disposing of them if nobody takes them. If you do bring a large item, we ask that you leave your contact information with a volunteer so we can contact you if no one takes it.

For the first time ever, Food Not Bombs will be present at the market and will be giving away free and delicious vegan food.

The market is open from 10 am until 4 pm. We stop accepting items at 3 pm and cannot accept anything before 10. Please treat everyone at the market with respect and generosity. We hope to see you there!
