What to Expect:

 

When you arrive at 10am we will have coffee and a snack available. Then it's off to the gardens or the woodpile for a morning of work and conversation, bird-song and laughter.

A home-cooked farm lunch is served at 1pm made with food from the garden (let us know if you have food sensitivities--we will have options available!).

After lunch you are welcome to walk the trails in the forest,  hang out with the animals, throw sticks for the dogs, doze in a hammock, take a farm tour . . . whatever you like.

We usually wrap up at around 4pm with a cup of tea and a snack for the road.

The day is child-friendly (we have jobs --and a tree house!-- specifically for kids).

There is no cost! Come dressed for the weather.

RSVP to brian.walsh@utoronto.ca by Thursday May 12, 2022 so that we know numbers for food.

If you are able to offer a ride, or if you need a ride, let us know.
