Fund Raising Dinner For Community Farm Draws 300 People at $100 a Plate
The Black Creek Community Farm, on the south east corner of Jane and Steeles was full of hungry people. It was the 2nd annual ‘Dinner at the Farm’ fundraiser on the evening of September 13. Toronto’s best chefs, live music, and the farm’s great organic fresh vegetables were the amazing features.
This unique urban farm is
a place of education:
teaching our youth how to grow crops
a force for the environment:
growing crops with natural, not chemical, fertilizers
a large green space for walking and working:
long gravel paths wind through the farm and down to the creek
volunteers and staff of all ages plant, care for, and harvest the crops
a place providing fresh, affordable vegetables to families in our community.
