Toronto Farmers: We’re digging in!

Last fall I wrote about an upcoming urban farmer gathering happening in Toronto. Since then Toronto Farmers has officially gotten rolling and will be hosting its third social next week!

With some much appreciated funding from Carrot Cache (a grant funding program from Toronto’s excellent food co-op the Big Carrot), we will be hosting 2 social events and 4 on farm tours/workshops this year.

If your in/around Toronto or know an urban farmer in town, we invite all urban growers to come out next Thursday March 6th from 7-10 at Maizal for a speed meet-and-greet mixer!

Maizal is a fantastic Mexican restaurant and they have forged a lot of relationships with local growers. Ivan, one of the owners, even grows at McVean Farm, FarmStart’s start-up farm in Brampton, ON.

Check out their menu: http://maizal.ca/menu

This is a very gracious offer they have made because they are closing the restaurant to the public just for us. Currently, we are planning on having a cash bar and people can order off the menu, so come with a hungry belly! They also have a limit of 50 people for their space. We want to see a great turn out and need some hard numbers for this event so either:

RSVP on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/events/1451127561783346/

OR

Email Jessica Gale jessica@freshcityfarms.com with your affirmation you are coming.

We strongly encourage that if you reply that your coming you really try your best to come out. Out of respect for the owners, we need to make sure our numbers are correct. Of course, stuff happens, but try to put this event in your calendar in pen, not pencil!

Look for future events in Toronto here or on our Facebook page:

I’ll be sharing how things progress in Toronto as we go, here with Young Agrarians.

Can’t tell you how pumped we are for this event. If your in the GTA, come on out! We hope to see you there.
