Help us help the market and other notable notes

DECA’s ecoholic, Mary Margaret, has a few bits to share.

First off, we can use some extra hands in delivering Farmers’ Market flyers.  We have lots of flyers and we always want to get the word out as far and wide as we can.  If you can take flyers to: your kids’ soccer games, daycares, camps, your dogwalking pals, your pub, your favourite shops, and your neighbours, friends and enemies – that would be wonderful.  You can pick them up from Mary Margaret at the DECA table at the market or from her front porch at 34 Keystone Ave.


Second, we told you about the ‘Not Far From The Tree‘ program earlier this year.  Now that you might have a tree bearing fruit, it bears repeating.  These folks will harvest your tree for you.  The fruit is split equally three ways: for you, for the volunteers who do the picking and for food banks and healthy food programs in the neighbourhood.  That sounds like a darn good deal to me.  To register your tree or learn more, contact Marnie via the website.

2. The Live Green Toronto initiative and the East Toronto Climate Action Group are hosting their second Green Cafe on Wednesday, July 29 from 8-9:30 p.m. at Cafe Florentin – 2010 Queen St. E (yes, it’s licensed!).  The free event will include short films on climate change and peak oil followed by a discussion.  Share your concerns and hear some solutions.  Learn about the available workshops.  Space is limited.  RSVP to Martina Rowley (your Live Green Toronto Community Animator) at or 647-208-1810.
