Community orchards...

Speaking of locally sustainable food, I attended a meeting in my general neighborhood last night to hear the details about a proposed orchard that is being organized by some members of the community in the north end of my ward. 

They hope to plant 40 fruit trees this spring in Ben Nobleman Park which is at the corner of Eglinton and Allen Road.

Although popular in England and gaining steam, in Vancouver, Boston and elsewhere, this will be Toronto's first community orchard where members of the public can volunteer and reap part of the harvest.
