Food Foraging in the City
Thursday, Aug. 11, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Public $20; Members $15
For delicious local food, think beyond garden veggies and explore Toronto’s wilder spaces. Nutritious and delicious wild foods grow all over the city, but it’s important to know what city regulations allow, how to harvest sustainablyand most importantlywhat NOT to eat. Each participant will enjoy a wild snack and take home a recipe.

Rye’s Homegrown Roof-top Field Trip *SOLD OUT*
Saturday, Aug. 13, 10 a.m. to Noon
Public $15; Members $10
Join Arlene Throness, Ryerson University’s first Director of Urban Agriculture, on a tour of the university’s ¼ acre rooftop farm. In 2015, nearly four tonnes of vegetables and herbs were harvested from this rooftop oasis and distributed to campus kitchens, a local farmer’s market and farm volunteers. This is inspiration at its finest!
